Event: Hydrologic Outlook
Sender Name: NWS Green Bay WI
Description: A combination of melting snow and precipitation will cause river
levels to rise from Thursday night into the weekend. Most
locations are expected to receive anywhere from around half an
inch to over one inch of precipitation on Thursday and Thursday
night. Combined with snow melt from temperatures in the 40s on
Thursday, fast flows and rising water levels on area rivers are
expected later this week.
Several rivers, including portions of the Menominee, Oconto, and
Wolf Rivers, are already at bankfull or minor flood stage. Though
significant river flooding is not anticipated at this time, other
rivers may reach minor flood stage later this week.
Considerable snowpack remains over far northern Wisconsin, where
many locations still have 6 to 20 inches on the ground, with
lesser amounts farther south. Little snow remains over the Fox
Valley, bayshore and lakeshore areas.
Residents who live near rivers and streams should closely monitor
water levels later this week, and be prepared to seek higher
ground if flooding becomes imminent.
