Rain could start Tuesday afternoon; flood warnings, watches issued along streams
Residents living in communities where rivers have flooded earlier this year in southern Wisconsin should be watching for rising waters and more flooding.
The National Weather Service has flood warnings out from Kenosha County to Buffalo County, because rivers that are above flood stage now will continue to be elevated through the week.
Flood watches have also been issued for streams not currently at flood stage, because of the 1 to 2 inches of rain that could fall the next two days.
After the rain, conditions will be decidedly different, with below normal temperatures and the likelihood of frost.
