Melting snow triggers flood warnings in Upper Midwest states


Rain and melting snow have triggered flood warnings in the upper Midwest, in contrast of the blizzard conditions of primary concern in other states.  A flood warning has been posted for the Eau Claire area and into southeastern Minnesota, while many rivers around Wisconsin are expected to reach flood stage over the next few days.  A flood watch has been issued for east central to southeastern Wisconsin that will go from Wednesday through Friday.  Wind gusts of 60 mph and a foot of snow is moving into South Dakota where a blizzard warning was posted, with a similar warning for northeast North Dakota and northwest to west central Minnesota in effect from Thursday through Friday.
