The northwest Wisconsin village of Lake Nebagamon (neh bah’guh mn) had five and three quarter inches of rain this (Tuesday) morning. The National Weather Service says the lake itself rose eight inches as part of a massive storm system that moved through eastern Minnesota and far northwest Wisconsin. The village is located in Douglas County, where Solon Springs had four point two inches of rain and County Trunk “A” turned into a pond. The storms went as far south as Barron County, where Prairie Farm had about two and a quarter inches. The storms passed through around mid morning, and a flash flood watch for the region was allowed to expire — and partly to mostly cloudy skies remain in the statewide forecast with afternoon highs in the 70s to near 80.
