KESHENA - A flood warning effecting south central Menominee county could be extended again.
The warning for the Keshena area is due to run out at 10:00 p.m. Friday.
The warning will be extended if high water continues to be a problem.
The National Weather Service issued the warning after ice jams backed up water on the Wolf River.
Rain and warm temperatures that melted snow last weekend added to the problem.
Now colder temperatures may cause additional ice growth, which could lead to a continued slow rise in water levels.
Based on current conditions, the National Weather Service thought it was likely the flood warning will need to be extended.
The high water caused the closure of Highway 47 and 55 at Keshena.
Traffic was routed around the problem.
