Flood concerns remain as dry weather returns

By  | 

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) Drier weather slated to move in for the upcoming weekend. This after several days of rain and melting snow brought on significant flooding to the area. A few flurries or sprinkles are possible Friday night and again on Sunday, but no significant precipitation is expected. In fact, we should see a decent amount of sunshine. Temperatures will run below normal and into the upper 30s and lower 40s.

While we won't be adding much rain in the days to come, flooding will remain a concern. Through Saturday, areal and low land flooding will linger. This should improve by late Sunday with river flooding being the main concern after that. River levels will remain high and above flood stage through early next week for most locations.

Drier conditions expected as we look over the next week or two. Overall precipitation is expected to be below normal. This should allow ample opportunity for water levels to fall and return to more normal levels. There are signs that by the final few days of March and pushing into April that things get more active again.
