Mild weather across the region will continue to produce dry
conditions today.  No significant rainfall occurred during the
last 24 hours and none is expected for the remainder of the week.
The next chance for precipitation will be over the weekend as a
cold front moves into the region.

...Hydrologic Conditions...
Flood levels in the western Chicago suburbs continued to recede
with only minor flooding observed on the Des Plaines and East
Branch of the Du Page Rivers. The mainstem Illinois River crest
was between LaSalle, IL and Henry, IL. Below LaSalle, IL only
moderate within-bank rises are expected.  Minor flooding continued
in the headwaters of the Minnesota River due to controlled
reservoir releases.  The Des Moines River at Estherville, IA was a
little above flood stage but continued to recede. High river flows
continued over portions of southern lower Michigan but were near
crest or falling.  High flows also continued on the Minnesota
River, and the Mississippi River below the Twin Cities, MN but
levels will remain below flood stage.
