This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of northeast
Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin.

.DAY ONE...This afternoon and Tonight

Isolated thunderstorms are possible through tonight, primarily
from central Minnesota to northwest Wisconsin. The storms will be
relatively weak, and otherwise just be capable of heavier rainfall
rates and breezy winds.

Widespread moderate to heavy rain is forecast across the Northland
through tonight and the first half of Thursday. The heaviest rains
will fall from central to northeast Minnesota, with much of the
area getting 1.5 to nearly 2.5 inches. Northwest Wisconsin is
forecast about 0.75 to 1.5 inches. The rain will likely result in
some ponding of water on roadways with poor drainage, and water
along creeks and rivers will rise over the next few days from the
rain. The potential for flooding is very low, but country roads
near creeks could have some standing water for a day or two.

Strong northeast winds will cause a high risk of rip currents
into tonight, mainly in the Duluth entry affecting the Park Point
Beach in Duluth.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Isolated thunderstorms are possible Thursday, primarily from
central Minnesota to northwest Wisconsin. The storms will be
relatively weak, and otherwise just be capable of heavier rainfall
rates and breezy winds.

Thunderstorms will be possible over portions of the Northland
Friday and again Sunday into early next week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Skywarn Spotter activation is not anticipated today or tonight.
However, any reports of flooding tonight are appreciated.
