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

Afternoon high temperatures are expected to increase into the
50s to near 60 by this weekend for most of the area. This will
significantly melt the snow from last weekend`s historic winter
storm, 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 into next week, causing rivers to rise.
Latest river forecasts indicate parts of the Wolf River basin may
surpass flood stage starting early next week. Other rivers over
northeast Wisconsin may also approach or exceed flood stage,
depending on the rate of the snowmelt.

Continue to monitor updated river forecasts through this weekend
and into next week.
