PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, WI (WTAQ) - The Mississippi River is over its banks Tuesday on about the southern half of Wisconsin's western border.  

The National Weather Service predicts only minor flooding in all locations -- even though the river is more than a foot above its flood stages at several spots including Prairie du Chien.  

Flood warnings are in effect until late Sunday night at Wabasha Minnesota, Saturday night at Winona, Friday afternoon at La Crosse, until at least Friday at Prairie du Chien, and until next Tuesday at Guttenberg Iowa across from Grant County.  

It hasn't rained for a couple days in much of the Badger State, but that could change soon. There's a chance of rain Tuesday night and Wednesday.  

Thunderstorms are likely on Thursday, with a chance of rain lingering into the weekend.
