..More Locally Heavy Rains Possible Through This Evening. Localized
Locally heavy rains fell across parts of the area Friday night.
One of these was a band of 1 up to 3 inches of rain from north of
Rochester Minnesota to near Whitehall Wisconsin. Another was a band
of 2 to locally 4 inches of rain from north of New Hampton Iowa to
near Lynxville Wisconsin.
Another round of stronger thunderstorms, capable of producing more
locally heavy rains is possible through this evening. Where locally
heavy rains from these thunderstorms will fall remains uncertain,
along with the threat of flooding. However, if more heavy rains fall
on the areas that had heavy rain Friday night, there is a risk of
localized flash flooding and river flooding.
If you live near a river or stream, monitor the thunderstorm
forecast and water levels closely. If rivers and streams near you
start rising out of their banks be ready to move to higher
