HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS NORTH CENTRAL RIVER FORECAST CENTER TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
1020 AM CDT MON JUL 28 2014

...Precipitation...
Showers and thunderstorms dropped rainfall across the northern 
half of the NCRFC region during the past 24 hours. Reports between
a tenth and a quarter inch were common across Minnesota and
western Wisconsin while eastern Wisconsin received between a 
quarter and two thirds of an inch. Michigan...especially the
eastern half of lower Michigan...received between a half inch and
inch. Isolated amounts greater than an inch and a half were
reported in Michigan.

A relatively dry day is in store for the region today but rain is
forecast to develop across the Great Lakes region Tuesday and
continue late into the week. Daily rainfall amounts should only
reach around a quarter inch...except in thunderstorms where
heavier amounts are expected. 

...Hydrologic Conditions...

There is currently no significant flooding in the NCRFC coverage
area.  Some Minor flooding is still occurring in the Souris River
basin located in North Dakota.  For the most part... river levels
are falling throughout the NCRFC area.  It appears that the Upper
Midwest is hitting a dry period and river flooding should be
negligible for at least the next week.
