...MELTING SNOW WILL RESULT IN RISING RIVER LEVELS...

Afternoon high temperatures are expected to be in the 50s and
lower 60s this weekend and early next week. This will result in
significant melting of the widespread snowpack, resulting in
runoff into area rivers and streams.

Depending on the rate of the snowmelt, flooding concerns
initially will begin with city streets where ice and snow
continue to clog some drainage systems, then to low-lying areas,
small streams and creeks. Homeowners should check their sump
pumps.

Eventually, the runoff will work into the main stem rivers and
streams this weekend and next week, causing water levels to rise.
Latest river forecasts indicate parts of the Wolf River basin may
surpass flood stage as early as Monday night. Other rivers over
northeast Wisconsin may also approach or exceed flood stage during
the upcoming week, depending on the rate of the snowmelt.

Persons living near rivers and streams should monitor the latest
river forecasts and hydrologic statements.
