All lakes are continuing to come down in spite of some rain this past week. Monona is now below 847.00 feet and we are moving into a season where the risk of thunderstorm actively is lower.

The City does not expect incoming rain to cause flooding in the next 24 hours. We expect minimal impact on lake levels. Less than a half of an inch of rain is expected.

City Engineering expects the dry forecast for this week to likely help lower lake levels. The next significant threat of rain is expected Thursday, Oct. 10.

City engineers expect Lake Monona to remain near the 100-year flood stage through Sunday, and dry weather early next week will be helpful and welcome. However, some rain is expected on Saturday.
Thursday, Oct. 3 at 6:55 pm
Additional rain, forecast for Saturday, is likely to bring Lake Monona water levels at or slightly above the 100-year flood elevation.

While the heaviest expected rain has passed, monitoring lake levels and the potential for flash flooding will remain a priority for City crews.
