Hydrometeorological Forecast Discussion

1116 AM CST Fri Nov 17 2017


During the past 24 hours, 1"-2" of snow fell over portions
northern North Dakota, northern Minnesota, northern Wisconsin, the
Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and western Lower Michigan.
Precipitation reports were generally 0.1" or less.

During the next 48 hours we are expecting between 0.5" and 1.5" of
rain over Lower Michigan, northern Indiana, and eastern Illinois.
Higher amounts will be in the southeastern extent of these areas.

...Hydrologic Conditions...
Rivers continue to run high in portions of the NCRFC area,
particularly the eastern half of the region, continuing the recent
wet fall pattern.

There are no rivers currently running above flood stage. Rainfall
over wet soils, combined with snowmelt from warmer temps over the
last few days have caused some rises to action. With the upcoming
precipitation, more flows could reach action stage throughout
Michigan, northern Illinois, and northern Indiana. Some of these
rivers could reach minor flood levels...however, no significant
flooding is expected at this time.

For additional and more in-depth information concerning river
forecasts, precipitation and all hydrometeorological information
