WISCONSIN — Five counties in southeastern Wisconsin are under a lakeshore flood watch through Saturday afternoon as a rainy/snow storm system moves through the area.

Some areas in Wisconsin could see up to 6 inches of snow this weekend. Rain is expected to move into the area around 3 p.m. on Friday and that rain is expected to turn into snow Friday night or Saturday morning.

This snow and rain could cause lakeshore flooding in Sheboygan, Ozaukee, Milwaukee, Racine, and Kenosha counties.

Homes and businesses near the lake could see water damage and flooding. Possible flooding could also lead to road closures.

The lakeshore flood watch goes into effect late Friday night and goes through Saturday afternoon. If you come upon flooding and do not know how deep it is, do not try and drive through it.

Make sure you allow extra time when traveling Friday and Saturday, as roads may be flooded or closed.
