HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAND FORKS ND
352 PM CDT FRI MAY 30 2014

...HEAVY RAIN POTENTIAL TONIGHT INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK...

A NEARLY STATIONARY FRONT WILL LAY FROM NEAR THE LAKES OF THE
WOODS TO SOUTHEAST NORTH DAKOTA TONIGHT. NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS WILL LIFT NORTHEAST ALONG THE FRONT...SO LOCALLY
HEAVY RAINFALL IS LIKELY IN THE VICINITY OF THE BOUNDARY.

ON SATURDAY...THE FRONT WILL DRIFT ONLY SLOWLY TO THE EAST.
ADDITIONAL LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN IS EXPECTED ACROSS PORTIONS OF
EASTERN NORTH DAKOTA AS WELL AS NORTHWEST AND WEST CENTRAL
MINNESOTA. THE HEAVY RAIN THREAT SHOULD SHIFT INTO THE SOUTHERN
RED RIVER VALLEY AND WEST CENTRAL MINNESOTA LAKES COUNTRY BY
SATURDAY NIGHT DIMINISHING ON SUNDAY.

ANOTHER SURGE OF MOISTURE MAY MOVE INTO THE AREA BY MONDAY AND
MONDAY NIGHT...ADDING TO THE RAINFALL TOTALS IN THE REGION.

ANY AREAS THAT RECEIVE REPEATED HEAVY RAIN EVENTS TONIGHT INTO
EARLY NEXT WEEK COULD EXPERIENCE FLOODING ISSUES. THERE COULD BE
RISES ON LOCAL RIVERS...AND USUALLY FLOOD PRONE AREAS NEED TO PAY
ATTENTION TO LATER FORECASTS ON THIS HEAVY RAIN THREAT.

TOTAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 1 TO 3 INCHES WITH LOCALLY HEAVIER AMOUNTS
ARE EXPECTED INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.

STAY TUNED FOR LATER STATEMENTS AND FORECASTS ON THIS DEVELOPING
HEAVY RAIN SYSTEM.
