HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS NORTH CENTRAL RIVER FORECAST CENTER TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
1055 AM CST THU JAN 29 2015

...Precipitation...

Since yesterday morning an inch or two of snow fell across upper 
and lower Michigan.  Water content of the snowfall was around a 
tenth inch or less... mainly in eastern upper and northern lower 
Michigan. Other areas of light snow or freezing rain/drizzle were
scattered across Minnesota and Wisconsin to northern Illinois to 
southern lower Michigan.  Scattered precipitation amounts here 
were only a few hundredths of an inch or less.

In the forecast....mostly light snow will continue today across
upper and lower Michigan to northern Indiana.  The heavier
precipitation has shifted east of the NCRFC region...so totals 
within our region today will average around a tenth inch or less.

...Hydrologic Conditions...

All ice jams in the area have stabilized with water levels
below flood stage.  Much colder temperatures will be returning 
to the region over the next week.  Many rivers have seen increased
flow due to the recent thaw.  There is potential for new ice jams to
form.  

No flooding is expected in the next 24 hours.
