Since yesterday morning snow that continued across the northern
part of our region produced around a tenth inch of water content
across Wisconsin to Upper Michigan to the western half of lower
Michigan. Scattered light snow produced a few hundredths of an
inch of precipitation in North Dakota and Minnesota... and for
scattered areas in Iowa to northern Illinois.
In the forecast for today...mostly light snow will continue across
the southern half of Minnesota to Wisconsin to Upper and lower
Michigan. Most precipitation totals will be very light except
could be near a tenth inch along lake shore areas across Upper
Michigan and along western lower Michigan. Then for the next
couple days light snow continues across the northern part of our
region with average precipitation amounts around a tenth inch or
less each day.
Ice jams continue at several locations causing elevated stages.
Minor flooding will continue on the Kaskaskia River downstream
of Carlyle Reservoir... where the lake is still elevated from
rainfall in late December.
Due to the rainfall over the southern half of the NCRFC area
over the past few days... local rivers in Iowa... Missouri...
Illinois... Michigan... and Indiana... are active.
