With even more rain in the forecast, the National Weather Service office in Green Bay has issued a flash flood watch for much of Northeast Wisconsin including Kewaunee County until 7 a.m. Friday (Sept. 13).

Showers and thunderstorms are likely with moderate to heavy rainfall – probably another 1 to 2 inches.

The area is still recovering from a rainfall of about 1.25 inches Tuesday that caused minor flooding in several low-lying areas. It was the latest of almost weekly heavy rainstorms since early August.

NWS says to be prepared for rapidly rising water levels and possible flooding if you are near a river, stream, or low lying area. Be ready to move to higher ground if heavy rain develops. Ponding of water in low spots on roadways is also possible, especially in urban areas.

Waterways are already high and soil saturated after heavy rains this week.

Meanwhile, a beach hazard statement remains in effect through Friday evening for the Lake Michigan waters of Door, Kewaunee and Manitowoc counties. Strong winds were expected to bring waves of 5 to 9 feet tonight and 4 to 9 feet on Friday to the Lake Michigan shore of northeast Wisconsin, resulting in dangerous swimming conditions.
