The Flood Watch continues for:

* Portions of east central Wisconsin, south central Wisconsin,  and southeast Wisconsin, including the following areas, in  east central Wisconsin, Fond Du Lac and Sheboygan. In south central Wisconsin, Columbia, Dane, Green, Green Lake, Iowa,   Lafayette, Marquette, Rock, and Sauk. In southeast Wisconsin,  Dodge, Jefferson, Kenosha, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine,  Walworth, Washington, and Waukesha.

* Through Friday morning

* Several rounds of rain with mild temperatures will melt the existing snow pack over southern Wisconsin. Rain and melting snow onto frozen ground will run off into ditches, streams, and rivers this week.

* Areas of flooding are likely, including urban areas due to storm drains blocked by ice and debris, low lying areas with water over rural roads, and rising water levels on many  rivers.


A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based oncurrent forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
