GAYS MILLS, WI (WTAQ) - The heavy rains are over, but western Wisconsin still has a couple of flood warnings.  

The Kickapoo River is expected to fall this morning at Viola, but it won't crest until Thursday at Gays Mills. Both rivers were below their flood stages at last word -- and if there's any flooding, it's supposed to be minor. Ditto for the Mississippi River at Wabasha.  

The National Weather Service says the river could reach its flood stage by Friday, with minor flooding projected.  

Parts of western Wisconsin received up to 3.75 inches of rain during the weekend and into Monday.  

The Weather Service now says that strong winds tore down trees and branches along a one-mile stretch of Racine County Trunk "L" near Mukwonago on Sunday night -- and a house that was under construction had one of its sides blown off.  

For the rest of the week, mostly dry weather and mild weather is expected with highs generally in the 70's in most of Wisconsin each day. There's a chance for more rain overnight, but no severe thunderstorms are in the forecast.
