HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAND FORKS ND
417 AM CDT FRI JUN 13 2014

...ANOTHER WEEKEND OF ACTIVE WEATHER FOR THE MN LAKES COUNTRY...

THE ACTIVE WEATHER PATTERN CONTINUES AFTER TRANQUIL COUPLE OF DAYS
WITH POSSIBLY SEVERAL ROUNDS OF RAIN AND STORMS EXPECTED FROM
SATURDAY THROUGH MONDAY. TOTAL ACCUMULATIONS ARE EXPECTED TO RANGE
FROM AN INCH TO TWO INCHES WITH ISOLATED HIGHER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE.
THIS SYSTEM HAS THE POTENTIAL TO IMPACT AREAS FROM FERGUS FALLS
TO WADENA NORTHWARD TO DETROIT LAKES...BEMIDJI AND THIEF RIVER
FALLS AND UP TO THE LAKE OF WOODS REGION. THESE AREAS HAVE
EXPERIENCED BETWEEN 2 TO 4 TIMES ABOVE NORMAL RAINFALL OVER THE
LAST TWO WEEKS. AS A RESULT EVEN THE SANDY SOILS IN THE REGION ARE
SATURATED AS WATER TABLES ARE HIGH. ANOTHER ROUND OF HEAVY RAIN
MAY PRODUCE SIMILAR RESULTS AS THE PREVIOUS HEAVY RAINFALL EVENT DID
WITH RAPID RISES ON AREA RIVERS...CREEKS AND DITCHES CAUSING A FEW
COUNTY ROADS AND SOME DRIVEWAYS TO BE WASHED OUT OR CLOSED.
