...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 Saturday. Isolated thunderstorms are also
possible. Significant rainfall totals of one inch to in excess of
two inches are possible, 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.
