Watch for Flooding

(3/31/14) Wisconsin was free of flood warnings, until the National Weather Service issued one for tomorrow.  The Trempealeau River at Dodge in western Wisconsin is now under a warning from tomorrow night until at least Thursday morning.

  Forecasters say the river is rising due to melting snow.  As of mid-day today, the Trempealeau was five-inches below its flood stage.  The Weather Service expects minor flooding before the river drops below its banks late Wednesday.  Meanwhile, Superior and Douglas County remain under a winter weather advisory through tomorrow morning.  A major snow-and-ice storm is hitting Minnesota north of Lake Superior, and far northwest Wisconsin is expected to be on the edge of that storm.  Forecasters expect a quarter-inch of ice late today, topped with an inch-or-two snow with winds of 25-to-40 miles an hour into tomorrow.  Parts of north central Minnesota expect 10-to-16 inches of snow from the same system.  Other parts of Wisconsin expect highs of up to 64 today in Madison, before a statewide cool-down tomorrow.  Highs are then projected to be in the 30's-and-40's through the rest of the week -- with another batch of rain and snow due in on Thursday.
