The weather forecast doesn't look good for people in the southwest part of state hoping to dry out from this weekend's floods.

According to the National Weather Service in Sullivan, another round of thunderstorms with heavy rain is possible for Tuesday night into Wednesday. In fact the area may not see any dry weather until Friday or Saturday.

Meteorologist Ken Rizzo says this pattern of storms is not terribly unusual. But the amount of rain they're producing is unusual. Rizzo says there's been anywhere from five to fifteen inches in the southwest during the past five days.

For someone living in the southern part of the state it may be difficult to understand most of the state is still in a drought. Rizzo says areas north of Stevens Point have gotten very little rain and are still in what he calls a moderate drought.
