...One More Round of Thunderstorms is expected Today...
The thunderstorms that moved across most of the area last night
brought the heaviest amounts of rain along and south of Interstate
94. Rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches were common in this area,
with the highest, around 3.50 inches, measured at Gwinner, North
Dakota. With the rain that fell last night, areas along and south
of Interstate 94 will be more susceptible to additional rainfall
this afternoon and evening.
A boundary is already setting up along the Interstate 94 corridor.
Along and north of this boundary, thunderstorms may develop and
then redevelop, producing multiple overlying heavy rainfall and
severe weather events.
If the rain stays along and north of the Interstate 94 corridor,
it will not fall on the susceptible areas further south. If it
falls south of the Interstate 94 corridor, it would likely result
in flooding problems. Developing convection today will be closely
monitored, and when it becomes clear where the heavy rain bands
will set up, watches or warnings may be issued.
