Snow is Going, Flooding is Coming

  • Published in News


Last week’s heavy snow has melted into flood waters in parts of Wisconsin.

Up to 21-inches of snow fell last week in the northwest part of the Badger State. It also resulted in the season’s first flood warning on the Chippewa River at Durand, where it’s almost a half-foot above its flood stage. Only minor flooding is forecast, even with a new threat of rain today. Flood warnings are also taking effect today on the Mississippi River at Buffalo County and near Prairie du Chien, where rain and melting snow have brought the river close to its flood stages. Meanwhile, flood warnings have been lifted for a couple of spots on the Rock River. Warnings remained in effect at mid-day at Lake Koshkonong, and at Afton between Janesville and Beloit.
