It could be another soggy spring in Wisconsin.
After record levels of flooding last year, conditions are shaping up for another year of rising waters. Steve Brueske with the National Weather Service says the ground in many parts of southern Wisconsin remains highly saturated, following heavy snow this winter and the heavy rains of last summer.
Brueske says that could result in a situation where a heavy rainfall wouldn't have anywhere to go, causing widespread flooding across the state yet again. He says three to four inches of rain falling over just a few days would be all it would take to cause flooding.
Brueske says the best thing that can happen right now is for Mother Nature to hold off on the April showers. He says a few weeks of sustained warm and dry weather would help the ground reach a point where flooding becomes less of a concern.
Flooding across Wisconsin in 2008 resulted in over $765 million in property damage.
