This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for north-central and northeast

.DAY ONE...Tonight

Hazardous conditions will exist near streams and rivers in central,
east-central, and northeast Wisconsin as high levels and fast
flows continue. Ice jam flooding remains possible on streams and
rivers that have yet to experience the spring ice break up.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Tuesday

A storm system could bring wet snow to the area Friday night and
Saturday, and create hazardous travel conditions. There is a great
deal of uncertainty regarding the track of the system.

High river levels and fast flows will continue across central,
east-central, and northeast Wisconsin. Streams and rivers across
the north will also likely experience rises and increased flows
as the snow melt continues.


Spotter activation will not be needed tonight.

...Significant rainfall early this weekend could lead to renewed
flooding concerns...

Unsettled weather will move back into Lower Michigan later this
week. Generally light amounts of rain will fall across the area
Thursday and Friday, but a stronger and wetter storm will impact
the area Friday night and Saturday. There is still quite a bit of
uncertainty with rainfall amounts, as well as where the rain/snow
line sets up with this storm. However, it looks like most of the
area will see between 0.5 and 1.0 inches of rain, with the
heaviest amounts likely south of I-96.

Depending on how fast this rain falls, it`s possible some of the
smaller streams that feed into the Kalamazoo and Grand Rivers
could be pushed toward flood stage. Meanwhile, the bigger rivers
will see rises, but are not currently expected to reach flood

To the north of I-96, rain amounts will be lower. However, the
ground remains frozen in many of these areas, and it`s possible
the additional rainfall could lead to non-river flooding or
ponding of water in some areas, especially in areas that have not
fully recovered from the snowmelt and rainfall from earlier this
month. It`s also possible that temperatures will be cold enough
for accumulating snow in these northern areas, which would
significantly limit how quickly the water levels would come up on
the rivers.

Those living along the rivers and streams in Central and Southwest
Lower Michigan should prepare for the likelihood of possible
renewed rises this weekend and into next week.
