Weather Runs Amok In Jackson County

Knowing Wisconsin weather, there was bound to be some last bits of winter weirdness to be thrown the County’s way.

After about a week of above-average temperatures, there was a sharp drop that brought along with it a lot of rain and snow.

Between the melting snow and rain in the middle of the week, the Black River became a flood concern and Jackson County was put under a flood warning.

Severe flooding was reported throughout the County including near the Melrose dock to the Black River and it was considerably noticeable in BRF at the dam.

By Friday morning, enough snow had been dumped on the county to shut down schools and delay girls basketball tournaments.
