A flood warning was in effect until 7:45 this (Wednesday) morning for parts of Trempealeau, Buffalo, and Jackson counties in west central Wisconsin.

The National Weather Service says much of the region had 3-5 inches of rain Tuesday evening, with numerous roads closed -- and the Trempealeau River at Dodge is expected to go above its banks tonight (Wednesday). Power lines went down in Trempealeau County, and outages occurred in many places in the northern half of that county. Later Tuesday evening, small hail fell in parts of Clark, Marathon, Lincoln, and Oneida counties with wind gusts up to 50. Meanwhile, more severe weather appears to be on the way for this (Wednesday) afternoon and evening west central, southwest, and south central Wisconsin with more tornadoes, hail, strong winds, and heavy rains possible.
