Severe Threat Diminishing

The threat for severe thunderstorms this afternoon is diminishing, as clouds have kept the temperature from warming enough. However, showers and storms are still expected to develop along a cold front this afternoon, and there is still a possibility that a few storms could be severe, especially if a few breaks develop in the clouds to allow for a little more heating. The better chances for severe thunderstorms are across eastern Wisconsin, where skies have been partly sunny this morning. The moderate risk area has been shifted well south into Illinois, Indiana and adjacent states, where a major outbreak is possible.

Heavy rain overnight has caused the river to rise (again). A flood warning is in effect at Gays Mills (again), where the river is expected to go above flood stage (again). Only minor flooding is forecast, with a crest of less than a foot above flood stage.
