Drowning danger high for area rivers

April 19th, 2013 at 9:24 am by under Weather

The threat for drowning is high with rivers running fast and cold across NE Wisconsin.  Remind your children to stay away from these rivers; they are not a good place to play.

Precipitation amounts will be light Friday, and dry Saturday and the first half of Sunday.  This is good news as we won’t add much runoff to area rivers, so don’t expect any big changes in water levels through the weekend. 

Half of the rivers in NE Wisconsin are below flood stage, the other half are near their banks.  The Fox River in Berlin is the only one reported in flood stage.  The Fox River in Berlin is expected to rise slightly today before slowly falling Monday
