HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DULUTH MN
530 AM CDT SAT JUN 14 2014

...LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL MAY RESULT IN ADDITIONAL FLOODING...

MANY AREAS ACROSS NORTHEAST MINNESOTA AND NORTHWEST WISCONSIN
HAVE EXPERIENCED A VERY WET SPRING. RAINFALL EARLIER THIS WEEK HAS
LEFT NORTHLAND SOILS SATURATED OR NEARLY SATURATED...ESPECIALLY
OVER PARTS OF CENTRAL AND NORTH-CENTRAL MINNESOTA. NUMEROUS
STREAMS AND RIVERS ARE RUNNING HIGH...RESULTING IN SOME ROAD
CLOSURES AND MINOR FLOODING.

A STORM SYSTEM APPROACHING FROM THE NORTHERN PLAINS WILL BRING
RAINFALL TO THE NORTHLAND ONCE AGAIN THIS WEEKEND. PERIODS OF
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED WITH TOTAL RAINFALL OF 1
TO 3 INCHES BY MONDAY MORNING. AT THIS TIME THE HEAVIEST RAINS ARE
EXPECTED IN THE BRAINERD LAKES VICINITY EASTWARD TO NEAR
DULUTH...INCLUDING HINCKLEY...PINE CITY...AND AITKIN. LOCALLY
HIGHER AMOUNTS ARE POSSIBLE WHERE THE STRONGEST THUNDERSTORMS
OCCUR.

ADDITIONAL FLOODING IS POSSIBLE THIS WEEKEND AS THE RAIN RUNS OFF
INTO AREA STREAMS AND RIVERS...ESPECIALLY OVER NORTH-CENTRAL MINNESOTA.
LOW-LYING AREAS THAT ARE SUSCEPTIBLE TO FLOODING ARE ALSO AT RISK.
RAPID RISES IN STREAM AND RIVER LEVELS ARE POSSIBLE AND ADDITIONAL
ROAD CLOSURES AND WASHOUTS ARE POSSIBLE.
