"Regardless if we see that freezing rain Wednesday morning, heavy rain looks likely leading to river flooding with widespread rain amounts reaching 4" to possibly as much as 6" of rain. The rain may be mixed with freezing rain, mainly in areas north of Madison. Storm drains and retention ponds will become near-full and begin to overflow in a few places. During stronger storms, the rain could start pooling at underpasses and low crossings, prompting brief road closures.
