HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS NORTH CENTRAL RIVER FORECAST CENTER TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
1025 AM CDT MON JUN 1 2015

...PRECIPITATION...
THE FRONT THAT WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR HEAVY RAINFALL ACROSS THE NCRFC
REGION THE PAST FEW DAYS FINALLY MOVED FAR ENOUGH SOUTH AND EAST
TO ALLOW DRIER WEATHER TO RETURN TO THE REGION...BUT NOT BEFORE
PRODUCING ANOTHER ONE HALF TO OVER ONE INCH OF RAIN IN
SOUTHEASTERN LOWER MICHIGAN.  ANOTHER WEATHER DISTURBANCE MOVED
INTO THE FAR WEST AND BROUGHT A FEW HUNDREDTHS OF AN INCH OF
RAINFALL TO THE EASTERN DAKOTAS AND SOUTHWESTERN MINNESOTA.

THE NEXT WEATHER SYSTEM WILL MOVE INTO THE WESTERN DAKOTAS TODAY
AND BRING A TENTH TO QUARTER INCH OF RAIN. IT WILL STRENGTHEN
TUESDAY AND BRING THE POSSIBILITY OF HEAVY RAIN TO THE BORDER AREA
OF NORTH DAKOTA....MINNESOTA AND CANADA. OVER AN INCH IS POSSIBLE
BY WEDNESDAY MORNING.

RAIN WILL SPREAD SOUTH AND EAST THROUGH THE WEEK AND BRING A
CHANCE FOR HEAVY RAIN WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY AS THUNDERSTORMS
DEVELOP. THE BEST CHANCE FOR HEAVY RAIN WILL BEGIN ON THURSDAY AND
CONTINUE FRIDAY MAINLY ACROSS IOWA.
