1155 AM CDT Fri Apr 29 2016
In the last 24 hours a large swath of rainfall was observed
over the NCRFC area. The heaviest band was generated over
east central Minnesota and west central Wisconsin with
amounts up to an inch. Also central lower Michigan received
a few tenth to nearly an inch of rain. Lighter rain was reported
in these states and the surrounding states of Iowa and Illinois.
The next system pushing up from the southwest is expected to
produce light to moderately heavy rain in the next 24 hours
for Iowa...Illinois and Missouri. Day 2 should continue with
widespread heavier rainfall for the southern NCRFC area before
moving out of our area with remnant light rain on day 3 in
Given the rain on the ground and the forecast rainfall for the
next 24 hours.. we are not expecting any flooding in our service
However...we are expecting some showers over Iowa...Illinois and
Missouri this weekend that will cause rivers to rise in those
areas. Western Iowa has particularly wet antecedent conditions..
so we may see some minor flooding in the Des Moines River Basin.
