Widespread showers and thunderstorms dropped rain across the
majority of the NCRFC region during the past 24 hours. The
heavier rain fell across Wisconsin...northern Illinois and lower
Michigan where a half to one inch reports were common. Afton
Wisconsin reported over 4 inches of rain.
Rain is expected to be scattered across the region for the next 5
days. The heaviest amounts are forecast today across southern
lower Michigan where another inch could fall and across the
Dakotas ...southeastern Iowa...northeastern Missouri and west
central Illinois Sunday and Monday where over an inch is forecast.
Most rain for the next 5 day will remain a quarter inch or less.
There are currently no forecast points above flood stage in the
NCRFC area and no flooding is forecast.
Multiple rounds of heavy rain in recent weeks have caused elevated
flows on many rivers across eastern North Dakota, Minnesota,
Wisconsin, Iowa and Illinois.
The Mississippi River remains at elevated levels along its entire
length within the NCRFC region. The river is at or near action
stage at many sites from Minnesota downstream through Iowa,
Illinois and Missouri.
Locations across the region that are already experiencing high
river levels will remain vulnerable to additional flooding if
rainfall totals or intensity in the next week become excessive.
