NWS North Central River Forecast Center Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
1227 PM CDT Wed Jun 21 2017


Scattered thunderstorm and showers produced around a quarter to
half inch of rain in several areas across our region.  These
heavier rain amounts were reported across central to southeast
Wisconsin, in northern Illinois, in central and eastern upper to
northern lower Michigan, and spotty areas from northwest to
southeast Iowa to central Illinois.  Otherwise scattered showers
across our region had around a tenth inch or less.

In the forecast....scattered thunderstorms will produce average
rain amounts around a quarter to half inch across the north half
ot Ioa to southeast Minnesota, and acjorss southern to northeast
Wisconsin to the north half of lower Michigan.  Lighter showers
with around a tenth inch or less of rain will be scatterd over
eastern parts of the Dakotas, across Minnesota to northern
Wisconsin to upper Michigan, and in northern Indiana to southern
lower Micihgan.

...Hydrologic Conditions...

They is currently no significant flooding across the NCRFC
area.  The Wolf River at Shiocton is the only NCRFC forecast point
at or above Flood Stage.  Elsewhere, rises are generally minor and
within bank.

Weather Prediction Center forecast rainfall for the evening of
June 22nd into the early hours of June 23rd has potential to cause
more significant flooding across parts of southern Wisconsin and
northern Illinois.  The rainfall for this period has shifted
slightly northeast from yesterday which indicated flooding
potential for eastern Iowa and Illinois.  The trend is unfortunate
with respect to soil moisture conditions.  Much of the state of
Wisconsin has saturated soils and very high streamflows for this
time of the year.
