What to Expect:
Wet weather returns after midnight tonight ahead of a strong storm system developing in the Central Plains. Expect periods of precipitation to continue through Thursday as the system slowly tracks east. By Wednesday, look for total rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches.
Meanwhile, winds becoming northeasterly tonight are going to gradually bring in colder air, cold enough that there could be a wintry mix Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, and possibly even a few inches of snowfall Wednesday night into Thursday.
River rises are likely in response to the rainfall this week. In addition, the lingering snow pack along and north of Interstate 94 will continue to melt, resulting in additional runoff into area rivers over west central Wisconsin. Flood warnings have been posted for the Trempealeau River at Dodge, WI and along the Black River at Black River Falls and Galesville, WI.
The amount of new rain or wintry precipitation could also cause flooding along smaller creaks and streams. Secondary or county roads may also develop problems with high water.
With the potential for wintry precipitation around mid-week, travel could be affected.
