Much of southern Wisconsin is under a flash flood watch through Saturday as another round of storms heads this way.

National Weather Service meteorologist Paul Collar says we can expect more heavy rain and straight line damaging winds that could reach seventy-miles and hour or higher late today and tonight.

The storms will hit an area that was inundated with rain Wednesday night causing flash flooding across the southern tier of states from the Mississippi to Lake Michigan.

Several roads were closed in Kenosha County where the Fox River has already flooded several areas. Hopefully, Collar says, today's storms will be fast movers and won't dump as much rain.

When will it end? Collar says it still looks as if Saturday and Sunday will be days to dry out but until then it will be "a rough go of it."
