UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  More than 5,000 electric customers in Wisconsin were in the dark this morning. That's after a weekend of high winds, heavy rains, and waterlogged snow.

About 7,000 custimers lost power this morning in Stevens Point. We Energies had almost 2,400 customers out -- mostly in the Jefferson and Campbellsport regions. The Wisconsin Public Service utility had just over 1,500 outages by 6:30, mostly in the Chilton, Crivitz, Green Bay, and Plainfield areas. Wisconsin Power-and-Light reported almost 1,400 outages, mostly in Grant, Iowa, Adams, Wood, and Menominee counties.

The weather was not bad enough to close any schools in Wisconsin, but over three dozen districts were starting two hours late. Valders in Manitowoc County has reported the most rain so far -- over five-and-a-quarter inches since Saturday. Snow and ice were the problems in northern Wisconsin this morning. Rhinelander had four-and-a-half inches by 5:30 a-m.

The National Weather Service said the precipitation would clear out by this afternoon, leaving us with cloudy skies and highs in the 20's-and-30's. It's supposed to be a bit warmer tomorrow, with highs from 30-to-40. Our next chance of rain and-or snow is Wednesday.
