Flash Flooding Threat Lower For Tonight

With the afternoon showers and thunderstorms affecting much of the local area, instability to fuel further storms with very heavy rain tonight has been severely reduced. Although some rain and scattered storms are still expected for most areas, the flash flooding threat has been reduced. The front responsible for the storm development also is moving a bit faster east overnight, reducing the threat of prolonged rainfall and thus the flash flooding potential. 

The Flash Flood Watch may be cancelled early if trends continue to suggest the threat is lessening further. You can still expect additional rain and storms overnight, but probably not flooding rains.   Rivers will still see a bump from today's rains of 1/4 to 1/2 inch of rain (isolated amounts near 1 inch).


  • Numerous rain showers with scattered thunderstorms are expected. Brief heavy rainfall could occur with the strongest of storms. 
  • Only isolated flash flooding from stationary storms appears possible overnight


  • Rain and thunderstorms will exit into eastern Wisconsin during the morning hours.
