...Significant Rainfall Late This Week May Lead to Renewed
Flooding...

A front will stall over the region late in the week, which will
result in a couple bouts of moderate to heavy rainfall from
Thursday night through Friday night. Latest trends suggest that
any moderate to heavy rain Thursday night is more likely to focus
south of I-80. The highest likelihood of widespread moderate to
heavy rain now will be from Friday afternoon through Friday
night.

Significant rainfall totals of one inch to locally in excess of
two inches are possible by Saturday morning, which could cause
sharp river and stream rises and lowland flooding. This includes
the most impacted river basins the past few weeks, the Rock,
Pecatonica and Fox.

Those living along rivers and streams should prepare for the
possibility of renewed flooding. Stay tuned to the latest
forecasts for updates.
