It's been a fairly wet spring in southern Wisconsin, but northern parts of the state are seeing the opposite happen.

Periods of scattered showers are in the forecast in southern part of the state for four out of the next seven days. State Ag Secretary Rod Nilsestuen says it hasn't been too wet though, with most areas getting an average amount of rain. He says farmers have been able to get their crops in and the extra rain could provide the "shot they need" to get growing.

However, Nilsestuen says they're worried after four straight years of dry weather in northwestern Wisconsin. He says low soil moisture could become a problem if those conditions continue.
