HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAND FORKS ND
420 AM CDT FRI MAY 30 2014

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

A SLOW MOVING FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL BRING THE POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY
RAIN TO PARTS OF THE REGION FROM THIS EVENING INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK. BY
FRIDAY EVENING THE FRONT WILL BE ORIENTED ALONG A LINE FROM LISBON
THROUGH GRAND FORKS TO ROSEAU AND REMAIN NEARLY STATIONARY
TONIGHT. NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL LIFT NORTHEAST
ALONG THE FRONT LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT INTO SATURDAY
MORNING. WITH A VERY MOIST ATMOSPHERE IN PLACE...HEAVY RAINFALL
IS BECOMING MORE LIKELY IN THE VICINITY OF THE FRONTAL BOUNDARY.

ON SATURDAY...ADDITIONAL HEAVY RAIN IS EXPECTED ACROSS MUCH OF
EASTERN NORTH DAKOTA AND NORTHWEST TO WEST CENTRAL MINNESOTA. THE
HEAVY RAIN SHOULD SHIFT INTO THE SOUTHERN RED RIVER VALLEY BY
SATURDAY NIGHT INTO 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.
