(4/28/14) Get ready for a wet week in Wisconsin.  

The National Weather Service says one-to-three more inches of rain will fall in the early part of the week -- and more minor flooding is possible.  The Mississippi River near Prescott, the Fox River at Berlin, and the Baraboo River at Baraboo are expected to rise above their flood stages between Thursday and Saturday.  Other rivers in the state could get flood warnings later in the week.  The Weather Service in Green Bay says local heavy rains tonight could cause minor street flooding.  Most of the state got a good soaking yesterday.  Places in southwest Wisconsin got close to an inch of rain.  Winds hit 55-miles-an-hour near La Crosse last evening, and 45 at Prairie du Chien.  Also, parts of northern La Crosse County had quarter-inch hail.  More strong winds are predicted today for much of Wisconsin, with gusts of up to 40-miles-an-hour.  The Weather Service says cool and rainy weather is expected all week, thanks to a slow-moving low-pressure system that was stalled overnight in Nebraska.
