Snowstorm in northern Wisconsin could impact river flooding

Flood warning
Flood warning

SHIOCTON, WI (WTAQ) - Another big snowstorm is heading toward far northern Wisconsin.  

That's bad news not only for the north, but for the rest of the state which will inherit that precipitation in the form of flood waters.

Folks in the southern two-thirds of Wisconsin already know what that's like. Parts of eight rivers in the state are under flood warnings from the National Weather Service.  

Many of those places got the remnants of up to 18 inches of snow in far northern Wisconsin from two weeks ago. Up to a foot more snow is projected in the same region for Wednesday.

Three new river warnings have been posted in the last day. The Wolf River at Shiocton and the Baraboo River at Rock Springs were predicted to go over their banks late Tuesday morning -- and the Fox River at Berlin is scheduled to go above its flood stage Tuesday evening.

The Chippewa River at Durand crested Monday night. It's supposed to get back within its banks Wednesday.

Previous flood warnings continue on four parts of the Kickapoo River in southwest Wisconsin -- along the Wisconsin River at Portage and the Fox River in Kenosha County -- the Baraboo River at Baraboo -- and parts of the Milwaukee and Sheboygan rivers.
