Despite Recent Wet Weather, Chance Of Flooding Still Low
Our winter without much snow probably will be followed by a spring without flooding...
Forecasters at the weather service office in La Crosse say the area has received one to two inches of precipitation this week, slightly raising the chance of flooding. But the long-range prediction is for a 'less than normal' risk of high water. In La Crosse, the chance is 30 per cent below normal, with the Mississippi barely expected to reach 7 feet. Flood stage is 12 feet. There's a 50 per cent chance of flooding on the Black River at Galesville, and also a good possibility of flooding along the Kickapoo in Crawford County.
