HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS NORTH CENTRAL RIVER FORECAST CENTER TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
1015 AM CDT TUE JUL 29 2014

...PRECIPITATION...
LIGHT RAIN FELL OVER THE GREAT LAKE STATES AND IOWA DURING THE
PAST 24 HOURS. GAGE REPORTS WERE GENERALLY ONLY A FEW HUNDREDTHS
EXCEPT FOR NORTH CENTRAL WISCONSIN AND THE WESTERN UPPER PENINSULA
OF MICHIGAN WHERE UP TO A QUARTER INCH WAS REPORTED. LATE
AFTERNOON SHOWERS DROPPED A FEW HUNDREDTHS IN IOWA...TOO.

OVER THE NEXT DAY RAIN IS EXPECTED ACROSS THE GREAT LAKES STATES.
AMOUNTS SHOULD ONLY REACH A QUARTER INCH. THIS PATTERN WILL
CONTINUE INTO THE WEEKEND.

...HYDROLOGIC CONDITIONS...
CONSIDERING THE AMOUNT OF SIGNIFICANT FLOODING THAT WAS GOING ON
ACROSS THE REGION AT THE BEGINNING OF JULY IT IS ACTUALLY PRETTY
AMAZING THAT VERY LITTLE REMAINS AT THIS TIME. THE WEATHER HAS
COOPERATED OVER THE LAST TWO WEEKS OR SO TO ALLOW ALL OF THE
RIVERS IN THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER DRAINAGE TO FALL BACK WITHIN
THEIR BANKS. THE ONLY RIVER REMAINING ABOVE FLOOD IN THE NCRFC
AREA NOW IS THE SOURIS IN NORTH-CENTRAL NORTH DAKOTA...WHERE
LEVELS SHOULD CONTINUE TO SLOWLY FALL FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE.

NO NEW FLOODING IS ANTICIPATED AS OUR MOSTLY DRY WEATHER
PREVAILS.
