(WLUK) -- A Flood Advisory is in effect for Brown, Calumet, Outagamie, Winnebago, Waushara, Manitowoc, Kewaunee, Fond du Lac and Green Lake counties through 9 am Friday. (See alert below)

With the recent rains and snow melt, the ground is saturated resulting in an increased chance of flooding. Flooding of low-lying areas is possible as area creeks and stream rise.

Most areas will pick up a total of 1 to 3 inches of rain as this intense low pressure area moves to the northeast into Lower Michigan.

From the National Weather Service in Green Bay: "At 302 AM CDT, Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicate heavy rain which will cause urban and small stream flooding in the advisory area. An inch or two of rain had fallen as of 3 am, and an additional half inch or more is possible. The rain will diminish by daybreak, but some streams could continue to rise for awhile after the rain ends."

Rain could be heavy at times this morning. The rain will end by about 10 am, with skies becoming partly sunny in the afternoon. The high reaches 72 degrees. Winds pick up out of the northwest at 10 to 20 miles per hour.
