Hydrometeorological Forecast Discussion
NWS North Central River Forecast Center Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
1130 AM CDT Mon Sep 25 2017

Rainfall occurred over much of the Dakotas, Minnesota, and
western Iowa in the past 24 hours. The remaining portion of the
NCRFC area remained dry. Rainfall totals were fairly uniform from
the central Dakotas across Minnesota with amounts generally
between three to seven tenths of an inch. Southwest Minnesota and
northwest Iowa had the highest observations with several 1.00 to
1.50 reports.

During the next 24 hours...continued northeast moving showers are
expected through much of Iowa, Minnesota, western Wisconsin, and
the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  Amounts between three to seven
tenths are likely to continue for the most part.  Some smaller
concentration of higher reports of 1.00 to 1.50 inches are
likely across central Iowa into southeast Minnesota.  This system
will hang around the northern portion of the NCRFC area for the
next 48 hours, but then the models indicate a prolonged dry
period at least through the weekend.

...Hydrologic Conditions...
This widespread rainfall is helping to produce some small rises on
creeks and rivers from the Dakotas into Minnesota and northern
Wisconsin, but no flooding is anticipated. Even with expected
rainfall for the next few days, rises should not result in any
flooding concerns.
