HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS NORTH CENTRAL RIVER FORECAST CENTER TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
1233 PM CST SUN NOV 23 2014

...Precipitation...

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.

...Hydrologic Conditions...

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.
