FLOOD WATCH
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
144 AM CDT SUN APR 13 2014

...FLOOD WATCH CONTINUES FOR THE CHIPPEWA RIVER IN WISCONSIN...

.THE CHIPPEWA RIVER CONTINUES TO SLOWLY RISE DUE TO THE RUNOFF
FROM THE SPRING SNOW MELT AND RECENT RAINFALL. THE CHIPPEWA RIVER
AT DURAND HAS ALREADY RISEN ABOVE FLOOD STAGE. ANY ADDITION
RAINFALL ALONG THE CHIPPEWA RIVER BASIN UPSTREAM FROM EAU CLAIRE
COULD POTENTIALLY CAUSE THE RIVER TO REACH FLOOD STAGE TODAY OR
TONIGHT. IT APPEARS MOST OF THE RAIN TODAY WILL BE SOUTH OF THE
CHIPPEWA RIVER BASIN. FURTHERMORE...BASED ON THE LATEST TRENDS IT
APPEARS THE RIVER IS NEARING A CREST AND WILL START TO FALL EARLY
THIS WEEK. WE WILL LIKELY CANCEL THE WATCH IF THE HEAVIER RAIN
DOES INDEED MISS THE CHIPPEWA RIVER.
