Rainfall Totals From Friday and Friday Night

Showers and thunderstorms Friday night into Saturday morning brought much needed rainfall to the Upper Mississippi River Valley. Torrential rains fell across a good portion of the region which did cause some  flooding across parts of western Wisconsin.  Another round of showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop during the afternoon bringing with it additional flooding problems for low lying areas as well as along many rivers and streams that are now running at or near bankfull.

For the latest rainfall totals from throughout the area, please see the Public Information Statement below...
