HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS NORTH CENTRAL RIVER FORECAST CENTER TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
755 AM CDT WED JUL 30 2014

...PRECIPITATION...
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS CONTINUED TO BE SCATTERED ACROSS THE
GREAT LAKES REGION AND DROPPED AROUND A QUARTER INCH OF RAIN OVER
WISCONSIN AND MICHIGAN.  ISOLATE REPORTS REACHED NEAR AN INCH.

BETWEEN AN TENTH AND QUARTER INCH OF RAIN IS FORECAST TO FALL IN
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS THE NORTHEASTERN QUARTER OF THE
NCRFC REGION TODAY THROUGH THURSDAY MORNING.  THIS PATTERN WILL
CONTINUE INTO SATURDAY.

ON SUNDAY A WEATHER DISTURBANCE WILL BEGIN TO MOVE FROM THE
DAKOTAS AND ACROSS NORTHERN MINNESOTA...WISCONSIN AND INTO THE
UPPER PENINSULA OF MICHIGAN. A TENTH TO QUARTER INCH OF RAIN IS
FORECAST SUNDAY AND MONDAY.  ISOLATED QUARTER TO HALF INCH RAINS
COULD BE SEEN IN HEAVIER THUNDERSTORMS.

...HYDROLOGIC CONDITIONS...
CONSIDERING THE AMOUNT OF SIGNIFICANT FLOODING THAT WAS GOING ON
ACROSS THE REGION AT THE BEGINNING OF JULY IT IS ACTUALLY PRETTY
AMAZING THAT VERY LITTLE REMAINS AT THIS TIME. THE WEATHER HAS
COOPERATED OVER THE LAST TWO WEEKS OR SO TO ALLOW ALL OF THE
RIVERS IN THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER DRAINAGE TO FALL BACK WITHIN
THEIR BANKS. THE ONLY RIVER REMAINING ABOVE FLOOD IN THE NCRFC
AREA NOW IS THE SOURIS IN NORTH-CENTRAL NORTH DAKOTA...WHERE
LEVELS SHOULD CONTINUE TO SLOWLY FALL FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE.
