HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS NORTH CENTRAL RIVER FORECAST CENTER TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
1115 AM CDT MON AUG 31 2015

...PRECIPITATION...

IN THE PAST 24 HOURS... RAINS MOVED OUT OF MICHIGAN LEAVING A
COUPLE TENTHS OF AN INCH NEAR THE DETROIT AREA.  SHOWERS MOVED
INTO NORTH DAKOTA FROM THE SOUTHWEST... AND ARE MOVING NORTHEAST
INTO CANADA LEAVING ABOUT A QUARTER INCH OF RAIN.  IN OUR SOUTHERN
AREA... ISOLATED THUNDERSHOWERS POPPED UP ALONG A STATIONARY
BOUNDARY JUST SOUTH OF SAINT LOUIS WITH VERY ISOLATED TOTALS OF
THREE QUARTERS TO OVER TWO INCHES... WHILE MOST AREA BASINS SAW NO
RAIN AT ALL.

IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS... RAINS WILL TRANSITION OUT OF NORTH
DAKOTA... AND THE SAME BOUNDARY IN OUR SOUTHERN AREA IS ALREADY
POPPING UP MORE THUNDERSTORMS IN SOUTH-CENTRAL ILLINOIS.  EXPECT
SIMILAR VERY ISOLATED HEAVY AMOUNTS FROM SAINT LOUIS AND
EASTWARD... WITH BASIN AVERAGES REMAINING BELOW A QUARTER INCH.

AS THE WEEK PROGRESSES... HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS TO OUR EAST...
BLOCKING ANY REAL PROGRESSION OF SYSTEMS TRYING TO MOVE IN FROM
THE WEST.  BUT WEAK BOUNDARIES WILL MOVE IN... CAUSING ISOLATED
STORMS IN OUR NORTHERN AND WESTERN AREAS... WITH CHANCES OF RAIN
BECOMING MORE LIKELY TOWARD THE END OF THE WEEK.

...HYDROLOGIC CONDITIONS...

HEAVY RAINS OVER PORTIONS OF IOWA LAST FRIDAY CONTINUE TO BE THE DRIVER OF
ANY FLOODING ACTIVITY IN THE REGION.  GENERALLY THE IMPACT IS MINOR FLOODING
ACROSS THE IOWA...CEDAR...DES MOINES...AND SOUTH SKUNK RIVERS AT THIS TIME.
