WINONA, Minn. (AP) - The National Weather Service says spring flooding in southeast Wisconsin is expected to be in the normal to slightly below-normal range because of below-normal snow depths in surrounding areas.
The Winona Daily News reports that Winona has a 28 percent chance of having minor flooding of 13 feet, an 18 percent change of having moderate flooding of 15 feet and a 12 percent change of having major flooding of 18 feet.
The agency's spring report also says the region's deep frost of two to three feet could lead to heavy runoff as spring approaches. Ice cover on rivers could also contribute to flooding, but is dependent on heavy rains.
The weather service will issue its next flood prediction report March 1.
