Sheboygan, Wis. (Learfield) - Flood warnings continue today on parts of five rivers in Wisconsin – and flood watches are out for three waterways. The National Weather Service says minor-to-moderate floods are either occurring or about to occur on the Fox River in Kenosha County, the Crawfish River in Jefferson County, the Rock River in Rock County, the Baraboo River in Sauk County, and the Kickapoo River throughout southwest Wisconsin. Some of those waters are above their flood stages, while others are close to spilling their banks. Flood watches are out for the Chippewa River in Buffalo and Pepin counties, the Fox River at Berlin, and the Rock River at Jefferson. Forecasters expect the Mississippi River to go above its flood stages at several spots by this weekend. But on the Saint Croix River in the northwest Wisconsin, forecasters predict a lower crest than expected at Stillwater Minnesota due to today’s colder temperatures. City officials expect a second crest – but they’re not sure when or where. So Stillwater officials have delayed put up a temporary levee until they get a more accurate forecast.
