Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 1:33 PM CDT Aug. 20, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect from 5 PM CDT this
afternoon through Tuesday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of east central Wisconsin and southeast Wisconsin,
including the following areas, in east central Wisconsin, Fond
Du Lac and Sheboygan. In southeast Wisconsin, Dodge,
Jefferson, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Washington, and Waukesha.

* From 5 PM CDT this afternoon through Tuesday morning

* periods of moderate to heavy rainfall from late this afternoon
into Tuesday morning. 1 to 3 inches of rainfall is expected, but
localized amounts of 4 inches or more are possible over
southeast and east central Wisconsin.

* Flash flooding in urban areas will be possible if 1 to 3 inches
of rain or more falls in a short period of time. Flash flooding
will be possible in rural areas that have already received
several inches of rain last week.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.




Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 1:24 PM CDT Aug. 20, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement now in effect through Tuesday
evening...

* high wave action... large waves and dangerous currents are
expected. Conditions are life threatening.

* Strong structural currents... expected.

* Strong longshore currents... expected.

* Rip currents... expected.

* Location... beaches from Port Washington to Kenosha. Beaches
with particularly dangerous conditions include...

    North Beach in Port Washington...

    South Beach in Port Washington...

    Harrington State Park beaches...

    Atwater beach in Milwaukee...

    Bradford beach in Milwaukee...

    North Beach in Racine...

    zoo beach in Racine...

    Sam Myers beach in Racine...

    Wind Point Lighthouse Beach in Racine...

    eichelman beach in Kenosha...

    Southport Park beach in Kenosha...

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Structural currents form along piers where longshore currents and
wave action flow into the structure. Structural currents can
sweep you out into deeper water along the pier structure.

A longshore current is a lake current that moves parallel to
shore. Longshore currents can be strong enough to prevent
swimmers from being able to keep their feet on the bottom, making
it difficult to return to shore.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars. Rip currents can sweep you into deeper water.
