More Flooding Is Expected Across Wisconsin This Spring And Here’s What You Need To Know

One sure sign of spring in Wisconsin happens when flood watches and warnings pick up across the state. April showers combine with snowmelt runoff to create some scary situations along Wisconsin’s rivers and this year looks like it will be worst than most. With areas of the state breaking records for snowfall in January and February, there’s significantly more melting snow than we’re used to. Plus, late snows have slowed some of the melting process. Now the spring storms have started and our awesomely irregular weather means it’s a dangerous time in the state and folks should be prepared.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
