Southern Wisconsin flooding may get worse before it gets better.
The National Weather Service predicts 1″ to 1.5″ of rain north of Madison, 1″ to 1.5″ in the Madison area, and 2″ to 3″ to the southwest from Friday night through Sunday.
With a chance for additional showers and storms into the middle of next week, that could extend and perhaps worsen the flooding in the region.
