Bayfield County soaked as thunderstorms roll through Sunday

CLAM LAKE, WI (WTAQ) - Bayfield County got the most rain by far, as a series of thunderstorms rumbled through Wisconsin over the past day.

Clam Lake and Namekagon each had just over 2.8 inches of rain in the 24 hours ending at 7 a.m.

It was just another notable weather development, in a region that was so dry last week that an 8,000 acre wildfire burned – and a freak snowstorm dropped up to 21 inches two weeks before that.

Ashland County authorities said a number of roads were closed Sunday night due to flooding.

The National Weather Service issued a flood advisory for far northwest Wisconsin until 9:15 a.m. Monday.

Far western Wisconsin also got heavy rains Sunday. Galesville in Trempealeau County had the most, with 2.36 inches.

Parts of the western half of Wisconsin had heavy rains, trees and power lines down, and winds of up to 60 miles an hour. There’s a chance for more storms statewide at least through Wednesday.
