STUEBEN, WI (WTAQ) - Twenty Wisconsin counties are under flash flood watches through Wednesday morning.
They cover about the southwest third of Wisconsin, where another 1 to 4 inches of rain are possible through Tuesday night.
The National Weather Service says 1 to 2 inches could fall by noon in parts of west central and southwest Wisconsin – plus another couple inches Tuesday evening.
The Weather Service says the ground is so saturated in southwest areas that pretty much any rainfall will run off and cause possible flash floods.
River levels are also expected to rise. Flood warnings continue along parts of 6 rivers in southern Wisconsin.
The Kickapoo River was over its banks Tuesday morning at Soldiers Grove and Stueben. The Sugar River at Brodhead and the Pecatonica River at Blanchardville were also above their flood stages. The Mississippi River at Prairie du Chien was just under its banks, but it still had a flood warning.
The same was true for the Rock River in Rock County, the Pecatonica at Martintown, and the Fox River at New Munster in Kenosha County.
By Monday, flood waters had almost disappeared at Boscobel in Grant County – but millions of dollars in flood damage were left behind in that area.
The statewide forecast calls for a chance of showers every day at least into the weekend.
