MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- The FOX6 Weather team says an additional 1-2 inches of rain will be possible for areas north of Milwaukee later on Sunday, April 13th. Areas south of Milwaukee could see 2 inches or more of rainfall Sunday. The rain is expected late Sunday afternoon -- and is expected to continue overnight.
Areas north of Milwaukee received 2-4 inches of rain on Saturday and Saturday night.
The extra rain expected Sunday has prompted the National Weather Service to issue a flood WATCH for the entire FOX6 viewing area through 10:00 a.m. Monday, April 14th.
This flood WATCH includes the following counties: Dodge, Jefferson, Kenosha, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Sheboygan, Walworth, Washington and Waukesha.
There is an increased potential that we could see many rivers and streams approach or exceed the flood stage. Other general low-land flooding is likely. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
Here is the FOX6 forecast for the next 36 hours:
Sunday: Periods of rain with occasional thunder (mainly after 1:00 p.m.) Temps falling to the 40s in the afternoon. High: 52° (early). Wind: NE 5-10 increasing to 10-15 mph
