Hydrometeorological Forecast Discussion
NWS North Central River Forecast Center Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
1056 AM CDT Sat Sep 23 2017


The northern regions of the NCRFC service area had some rainfall in
the past 24 hours.  The precipitation was broken into two areas of
concentration.  Northern North Dakota and Minnesota near Lake of
the Woods had amounts around three tenths of an inch on average.
Lake of the Woods county had an area of high concentration with
radar estimates of over three inches and several observations of
over an inch.  A swath of rainfall also pushed northeast across
eastern South Dakota through Minnesota and up into northern
Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  Amounts were
generally a quarter to three-quarters of an inch in the main path
of the system.  Hayward and Phillips county in Wisconsin got hit
with some excessive rainfall.  Multiple reports of over 2.5 inches
were reported from these counties.

Rainfall will continue to come up from the south through South
Dakota into eastern North Dakota and northern Minnesota during the
next 24 hours .  Highest amounts in the NCRFC area are forecast to
be an inch to one and a half inches.  The tri-state border of the
Dakotas and Minnesota is the area expected to have the highest
amounts within the NCRFC service area.

...Hydrologic Conditions...

There are currently no active forecast points in the NCRFC service

However, we could see some river rises to bankfull and minor flood
levels early in the upcoming work week in North Dakota and Minnesota
with a nearly stationary front, lots of available moisture, and
recently primed soils from heavy rains over the past few days.
5 day QPF totals were lower today than in previous days.

The general hydrologic situation remains quiet elsewhere across
the NCRFC area.
