More rain on the way; minor river flooding & low-lying ponding

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) - Another round of showers and storms are expected to develop with some localized flooding possible.

This will mainly impact our central and southern areas after midnight, including the Madison metro. Farther north, only up to a tenth of an inch of rain is possible, with most areas getting a quarter to half inch of additional accumulations farther south, however some hot spots could get up to an inch!

Be sure to watch out for ponding on area roads and low-lying spots, especially since it'll be dark. Small creeks and streams may also rise quickly. Find an alternate route if you see a water-covered road!

The Fox, Mississippi and Rock Rivers are all experiencing minor flooding and will continue to do so for much of this week since we have multiple rain chances in the 7-day forecast.
