HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DULUTH MN
335 PM CDT MON SEP 8 2014

...HEAVY RAINFALL TUESDAY NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY WITH FLOODING AND
RISES ON AREA RIVERS POSSIBLE...

A STRONG LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO TRACK FROM THE
MIDWEST INTO THE CENTRAL GREAT LAKES TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH
WEDNESDAY NIGHT. WIDESPREAD RAIN WITH NUMEROUS EMBEDDED HEAVY RAIN
SHOWERS WILL SPREAD ACROSS THE REGION. THE HEAVIEST RAIN IS
EXPECTED TUESDAY EVENING THROUGH WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON. RAINFALL
AMOUNTS OF 1 TO 3 INCHES ARE LIKELY WITH THE HIGHEST AMOUNTS EXPECTED
TO OCCUR SOUTH AND EAST OF THE HAYWARD LAKES REGION. SOME AREAS
COULD EXCEED 3 INCHES.

THERE IS STILL SOME UNCERTAINTY AT THIS TIME REGARDING THE EXACT
PLACEMENT AND MAXIMUM AMOUNTS OF THE HEAVIEST RAINFALL.
HOWEVER...AREA RESIDENTS SHOULD PREPARE FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF
RAPID RISES ON AREA WATERWAYS THAT COULD PRODUCE LOCAL FLOODING
AND THE POTENTIAL FOR ROAD CLOSURES AND WASHOUTS. LOW LYING AREAS
THAT ARE SUSCEPTIBLE TO FLOODING ARE ALSO AT RISK...ESPECIALLY
LOCATIONS ALREADY SATURATED FROM RECENT HEAVY RAINS LAST WEEK
AROUND THE HAYWARD AREA AND INTO PRICE COUNTY. ANYONE WITH
INTERESTS ALONG AREA CREEKS... RIVERS OR STREAMS SHOULD HAVE AN
ACTION PLAN TO QUICKLY SEEK SAFETY ON HIGHER GROUND SHOULD HEAVY
RAINFALL AFFECT THEIR AREAS.

PLEASE MONITOR THE LATEST WEATHER INFORMATION FOR CHANGES IN THE FORECAST
AND POSSIBLE WATCHES OR WARNINGS.
