1233 PM CST SUN NOV 23 2014
During the past 24-hours light rain fell from Missouri to lower
Michigan. Rainfall totals were generally a quarter inch or less.
During the next 24-hours...a large area of precipitation generally
in the form of rain is forecast for Missouri...Illinois...Indiana
...Wisconsin and much of Michigan. Rainfall totals of 1 - 2
inches are possible over a large area in this region.
No flooding is occurring in the NCRFC area at the moment. A
handful of locations are experiencing bank-full rises due to
freeze-up ice jams... and many rivers in the region are seeing
a temporary reduction in flow due to ice formation.
With this weekend's warm up and rain event... locations in
Illinois... Wisconsin... and Michigan may see bank-full to near
flood conditions from rain and snow melt runoff. Ice affects
are likely to be reduced as the relatively fresh ice should melt
and-or break up easily. Still... there remains a possibility of
additional ice jams with the increased flow... and especially as
we enter another cold period through the week.
