      Devastating flooding in western Wisconsin with the worst from the Mississippi River to about 10-20 miles south or southwest of I-94. In a thin area, between 4 and 7.5 inches rain fell in just a few hours last night, while in some cases places just 15 miles away got just over an inch. An Areal Flood Warning is in effect through Friday as the flood waters slowly run off, but another Flash Flood Watch has been issued for these same areas as more rounds of showers and thunderstorms are possible through Saturday, with more rain adding onto those impressive totals. Rain chances increase to likely by tomorrow afternoon, with another round possible overnight into Saturday morning. A few showers/storms possible Saturday afternoon and evening, but these should be isolated in nature as much of the day will be dry, with even lesser chances Sunday before completely drying out Monday and Tuesday, where the humidity will once again be comfortable, before more chances for showers and storms return for the middle of next week. -Stormtracker 18 Weather Meteorologist Matt Schaefer
