HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS NORTH CENTRAL RIVER FORECAST CENTER TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
1159 AM CDT SUN MAY 24 2015

...PRECIPITATION...
IN THE PAST 24 HOURS...PRECIPITATION WAS OBSERVED ACROSS MOST OF
IOWA...NORTHERN AND CENTRAL MISSOURI...AND ACROSS PORTIONS OF
SOUTHERN AND CENTRAL MINNESOTA AND NORTHERN ILLINOIS.  THE
HEAVIEST PRECIPITATION REMAINED TO THE WEST OF THE NCRFC
AREA...AND OBSERVED TOTALS WERE UNDER AN INCH IN SOUTHERN IOWA AND
NORTHEASTERN MISSOURI.

IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS...PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
ADVANCING NORTH AND EASTWARD AS THE SYSTEM THAT HAS ALREADY
BROUGHT MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF HEAVY PRECIPITATION TO THE SOUTHERN
PLAINS STARTS TO IMPACT THE REGION. RAIN IS EXPECTED ACROSS MOST
OF THE AREA TODAY...WITH THE HEAVIEST TOTALS ACROSS
MISSOURI...IOWA...AND NORTHEASTWARD INTO CENTRAL WISCONSIN AND
NORTHERN LOWER MICHIGAN. WIDESPREAD TOTALS OF AN INCH OR MORE ARE
EXPECTED...WHILE SOME AREAS IN IOWA AND MISSOURI COULD SEE HIGHER
AMOUNTS. RAIN IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO IMPACT THE AREA INTO THE
WEEK...AND 3 DAY TOTALS OF MORE THAN 2 INCHES ARE EXPECTED TO BE
WIDESPREAD.

...HYDROLOGIC CONDITIONS...
ALL RIVERS IN THE NCRFC AREA HAVE FALLEN BELOW FLOOD STAGE.  BUT
BANKFULL CONDITIONS CONTINUE ACROSS THE EASTERN DAKOTAS AND
MINNESOTA.  THE RAIN THIS WEEKEND HAS ALREADY CAUSED SMALL RISES
ON RIVERS IN IOWA... AND WITH MORE ON THE WAY...RIVERS IN THE DES
MOINES AREA WILL SEE BANKFULL RISES.  WITHIN BANK RISES ARE LIKELY
ACROSS IOWA... MINNESOTA... WISCONSIN... AND NORTHERN AND WESTERN
ILLINOIS.  THE SUM TOTAL OF ALL THESE RISES PLUS THE MISSOURI
RIVER CONTRIBUTION WILL LIKELY RESULT IN A BANKFULL RISE ON THE
MISSISSIPPI NEAR CHESTER ILLINOIS IN ABOUT A WEEK.  HOWEVER... NO
NEW SIGNIFICANT FLOODING IS EXPECTED IN THE NEXT FIVE DAYS.
