This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for north-central and northeast
Wisconsin.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Some streams and rivers could reach flood stage today or tonight
as the water from yesterday`s rain and snow works its way through
the river systems.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

A strong system is forecast to impact the region Saturday night
into Tuesday. Heavy rains are possible, especially over east-
central Wisconsin. This could raise river and stream levels once
again to near or above flood stage. Light snow or a mix of rain
and snow will be possible across north-central Wisconsin Sunday
night into Monday morning. While a light snow accumulation cannot
be ruled out Sunday night, it now appears that temperatures will
be warm enough to keep any accumulation to a minimum.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
