HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DULUTH MN
245 PM CDT TUE AUG 9 2016

...HEAVY RAIN IS LIKELY WEDNESDAY NIGHT INTO THURSDAY WITHIN THE
MISSISSIPPI RIVER HEADWATERS AND THE SURROUNDING REGION...

STORMS WILL LIKELY DEVELOP WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON ACROSS NORTHWEST
MINNESOTA AND SHIFT EASTWARD INTO NORTH CENTRAL AND CENTRAL
MINNESOTA WEDNESDAY NIGHT. INTENSE RAINFALL RATES ARE A THREAT
WITH THESE STORMS. THE HEAVIEST RAINFALL IS PREDICTED FOR WEDNESDAY
NIGHT INTO THURSDAY MORNING. THE POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR AREAS
RECEIVING GREATER THAN FOUR INCHES OF RAINFALL IN A SHORT PERIOD
OF TIME. SUCH HEAVY RAIN WOULD PRODUCE FLOODING WITHIN THE
MISSISSIPPI RIVER HEADWATER BASIN AND TRIBUTARIES.

THE LATEST GUIDANCE INDICATES THE AREA OF HEAVIEST RAIN WILL
OCCUR JUST SOUTH OF THE BRAINERD LAKES REGION NORTH TO CASS LAKE.
WHILE THE EXACT LOCATION OF THE GREATEST RAINFALL ACCUMULATIONS IS
STILL UNCERTAIN...IT IS PRUDENT TO PLAN FOR THE POTENTIAL FOR
RAPIDLY RISING WATER LEVELS. IF YOU LIVE OR WILL BE NEAR SMALL
STREAMS AND CREEKS ACROSS NORTHEAST MINNESOTA AND NORTHWEST
WISCONSIN...CONTINUE MONITORING THE POTENTIAL FLOODING SITUATION
AND STAY TUNED FOR FURTHER FORECAST DETAILS.
