More Extraordinary Flooding


There have been unusual flash floods in the “upper” (northern) midwest this week. Here’s a spectacular road washout in Wisconsin on State Road 60, a road I am personally familiar with and very fond of. It’s a beautiful autumn drive that I highly recommend, but it looks like there will be a bit of a detour this season.

Here’s a plot of recent rainfall accumulation from Jesse Ferrell’s blog at Accuweather. This would be over the week ending Monday the 20th; contours in inches.
