The National Weather Service says the Black River is a half-foot over its flood stage in Black River Falls.
But it’s expected to drop back below its 47-foot flood stage later today. Also, the Black River at Galesville continues to rise. And the Weather Service says it will go above its 12-foot flood stage for a brief time on Wednesday. Only minor flooding is expected. Leftover showers from yesterday are due to leave far eastern Wisconsin by mid-afternoon. More rain is due in tomorrow – but forecasters say it will be dry-and-mild for the rest of the week.
