...HEAVY RAIN POTENTIAL FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY...

A SLOW MOVING FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL BRING THE POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY
RAIN TO PARTS OF THE REGION FROM FRIDAY EVENING INTO SATURDAY. BY
FRIDAY EVENING THE FRONT WILL BE ORIENTED ALONG A LINE FROM LISBON
THROUGH GRAND FORKS TO ROSEAU AND REMAIN NEARLY STATIONARY
OVERNIGHT. NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL LIFT NORTHEAST
ALONG THE FRONT CONTINUING OVERNIGHT FRIDAY. WITH A VERY MOIST
ATMOSPHERE IN PLACE HEAVY RAINFALL IS POSSIBLE IN THE VICINITY OF
THE FRONTAL BOUNDARY.

THERE IS LESS CERTAINTY ON THE HEAVY RAIN POTENTIAL AND HEAVIEST
RAIN LOCATION SATURDAY. HOWEVER MORE RAIN SATURDAY OVER ALREADY
SATURATED SOILS COULD LEAD TO FLOODING OVER FLOOD PRONE AND LOW
LYING AREAS. AREAS IN EASTERN NORTH DAKOTA INTO NORTHWEST
MINNESOTA COULD ALSO SEE RISES IN RIVERS AND STREAMS. TOTAL
RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 1 TO 3 INCHES WITH LOCALLY HEAVIER AMOUNTS ARE
EXPECTED.

RAIN SYSTEM.
