Advisory

Flash Flood Watch until 01:00PM Wednesday

Heavy rain is likely later today through tonight as another round of showers and thunderstorms move through the area. The bulk of the heavy rain is expected to fall from southeast Minnesota into northwest Wisconsin. Amounts from 2 to 6 inches are anticipated, with locally higher possible. Localized flooding should be planned for with the potential for more widespread flooding to develop. Rapid rises on rivers and creeks and other drainage areas will also occur, leading to an additional flooding threat. Southeast of La Crosse amounts are expected to be less, but northeast Iowa and southwest Wisconsin have already experience several inches of rain over the past week. Any additional rainfall will likely result in more flooding - possibly life threatening. This is a potentially dangerous situation, especially in those locations that are currently, or have recently had heavy rain and flooding. The time to prepare is now. Do not wait until heavy rain or flooding is occurring. The National Weather Service in La Crosse has issued a
