Got a very active pattern of storms showing through the plains states and up into NW Wisconsin. Should make for an interesting evening as we continue to monitor the situation. But make sure you have a safety plan in mind and weather radios ready for when you need them!


HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK

HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MILWAUKEE/SULLIVAN WI
344 PM CDT SAT MAY 18 2013

...PERIODS OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS BRING FLOODING
POTENTIAL...

A SLOW-MOVING LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM APPROACHING FROM THE PLAINS THIS
WEEKEND AND CROSSING THE WESTERN GREAT LAKES EARLY NEXT WEEK WILL
BRING ROUNDS OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO SOUTHERN WISCONSIN.

WHILE THERE ARE STILL SOME DIFFERENCES AMONG THE MODELS IN THE
EXACT DETAILS IT APPEARS THAT A SURFACE FRONT EXTENDING EAST FROM
THE APPROACHING LOW WILL BECOME NEARLY STATIONARY ACROSS THE
STATE... AND WILL BE THE FOCUS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF REPEATED
ROUNDS OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS...CAPABLE OF PRODUCING HEAVY RAINFALL.

WHILE MODEL AVERAGE PRECIPITATION TOTALS FOR THE AREA CURRENTLY RANGE
BETWEEN 1.5 INCHES AND 3 INCHES THROUGH THE FIRST PART OF NEXT
WEEK...THE AVAILABLE MOISTURE REFLECTED IN PRECIPITATABLE WATER
VALUES RUNNING BETWEEN 120 TO 160 PERCENT OF NORMAL MEANS THAT
RAIN TOTALS COULD BE MUCH MORE THAN THE AREAL AVERAGE...ESPECIALLY
AT LOCATIONS THAT SEE STORMS WITH HEAVY RAINS REPEATEDLY MOVING
THROUGH.

AREA RIVERS THAT HAVE JUST RECENTLY FALLEN TO...OR BELOW BANKFULL
MAY RISE BACK UP INTO FLOOD. QUICK-RESPONDING RIVERS AND STREAMS
MAY QUICKLY FLOOD IF AFFECTED BY SEVERAL ROUNDS OF HEAVY RAIN IN
A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. THE HEAVY RAINS COULD CAUSE PONDING OF
WATER ON AREA ROADS.

KEEP UP WITH THE LATEST FORECASTS AND STATEMENTS FOR FURTHER
INFORMATION ON THE FLOODING POTENTIAL.

NEWS REPORT

Posted by Josh Swangstu on May 2, 2013 at 5:35 PM Comments comments (0)


May 2, 2013  11:00 a.m.

Overview: A major winter storm has been dumping over a foot of snow in northwest Wisconsin. According to the National Weather Service – many areas this morning received 1-2 inches of snow per hour.   The snow is expected to continue today with another 5-7 inches from Ashland to Hayward and East.   Tomorrow the area is expected to receive a snow/rain mixture with possible freezing rain in the early morning.

WI Dept. of Transportation: DOT issued a press release this morning regarding travel in the northwest. With more snow expected throughout the day, motorists are being asked to refrain from travelling unless absolutely necessary throughout most of the region as the Winter Storm Warning continues for many counties in northwestern Wisconsin.  The Northwest Region State Patrol has responded to about a dozen runs offs and crashes, including one fatality overnight in Dunn County. Highway crews have been out plowing state highways most of the night and will continue throughout the day, but are having a difficult time keeping up in some areas due to the local snow fall rate. With more snow expected throughout the day, motorists are being asked to refrain from travelling unless absolutely necessary throughout most of the region as the Winter Storm Warning continues for many counties in northwestern Wisconsin. Winter road conditions are available by calling 5-1-1 or 511wi.gov.

Power Outages: A significant storm with heavy, wet snow began early Thursday morning and continues to move through northwestern Wisconsin, impacting approximately 24,000 Xcel Energy electric customers. Xcel Energy has brought in all available crews from areas that were not impacted by the storm and from neighboring utilities to assist in restoration and expects to make significant progress today. At this time, approximately 16,000 customers still remain without service. We anticipate having most customers restored to service by tonight with all customers being restored by end of the day on Friday. The hardest hit areas include Menomonie, Spring Valley, Hudson, Amery, Birchwood and Hayward.  No shelters are currently open.

Ashland County: Reports of 7-12 inches of snow. Flooding is still a possibility on the Bad River and Chippewa River in the Town of Glidden.

Barron County:  Reports 10-12 inches of snow, there are reports of down branches and some power lines, scattered report of power outages. County Schools are closed.

Bayfield County: Reports of 12 inches in the City of Washburn down to 4 inches in other parts of the county

Burnett County: Reports of 4-6 inches of snow, estimated 600 people out of power. Schools are open.

Douglas County: Reports of 2 to 4 inches of snow. No reports of power outages or flooding.

Iron County: Reports of 3 to 5 inches of snow. Schools are open. The Montreal River remains at flood stage.

Polk County: Polk County is apparently one of those counties on the edge between the heavy and lighter snow amounts. In the NW corner of the county there is little to no snow. In the central part (north of Hwy 8) they have 4 - 6 inches. South of Hwy 8 is where the brunt of the storm hit. Snow amounts ranging from 9-10 inches in Amery, to 12 plus in the Clear Lake and Clayton areas. There are many reports of trees down and power outages. There are not large areas without power, just the smaller localized outages.

Price County:   About 1”-2” of snow reported in northern and western parts of county. Ice is accumulating on trees, power lines, grass throughout most of the county.

Rusk County:   Snow ranges from 6 to 8 inches of snow. Schools are closed. No reports of power outages

Sawyer County: There are reports of trees down in the Hayward and Lac Courte Oreilles area. 7 inches in Winter, 9 to 12 inches in the Hayward Area.

Washburn County: County had an average of 6" of snow. A couple roads are being monitored for potential flooding.

The State Emergency Operations Center remains on the 24-hour duty officer system, which is level 4. The WEM Senior Duty Officer and the Duty Officer will continue to monitor the situation.
