I look outside my office window, and I see …
… rotating clouds. (Photos by our Erica Dakins.) Things are starting to look suspiciously similar to June 12, when, you’ll recall, some areas received a couple of months of rain in one afternoon.
Thursday 11:45 a.m. update: A Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for Brown, Calumet, Kewaunee, Manitowoc, Outagamie, Shawano, Waupaca, Waushara and Winnebago counties through Friday morning, and for Fond du Lac, Green Lake, Marquette and Sheboygan counties through Saturday evening. The quote from the latter warning: “Another very dangerous flooding situation may be developing for southern Wisconsin. It has many similarities to the weather pattern and subsequent flooding experienced back in early June.”
Another advisory has this news: “Several inches of rain are likely in some areas by Sunday night.”
