...Additional river rises and flooding possible...

The recent reprieve from heavy rainfall has allowed soil moisture
to decrease and last week`s moderate to major river flooding to
subside. However, an additional wave of moderate to locally heavy
rainfall is expected this afternoon and evening as a strong storm
system moves into the area. The potential exists for an additional
1.0 to 2.0 inches of rain to fall in the Rock and Pecatonica
River basins with this latest wave of thunderstorms. This rainfall
is expected to lead to renewed main stem river rises in addition
to localized instances of urban and small stream flooding.

A quieter weather pattern is expected to develop this weekend and
into next week, with generally low chances for light rain showers.

This outlook means that elevated river conditions and potential
impacts are possible. Those with interests along area rivers
should closely monitor future river forecasts including the
possibility of flood watches, warnings, and advisories.
