Hydrometeorological Forecast Discussion
NWS North Central River Forecast Center Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
112 PM CDT Fri Oct 20 2017

...Precipitation...
The stretch of clear skies that the NCRFC service area has enjoyed
for the past few days continues through today and tonight. It is,
however, coming to an end tomorrow.  A system will be moving in
from the west and passing over the entire service area over the
next couple of days.  The system is predicted to produce more
precipitation in the south with 48 hour totals ranging from around
2.0 inches in northern Missouri to 0.10 niches in northern
Minnesota.

...Hydrologic Conditions...
Higher river flows continued to slowly recede on the Minnesota
River, the upper portion of the Des Moines River, the upper
Mississippi River above Lock and Dam 10, and a few tributaries
feeding the Mississippi River above the Twin Cities, MN.  We are
now down to 15 active forecast points in Minnesota, Iowa,
Wisconsin, and the UP of Michigan.

Minor flooding continued around Montivideo, MN due to controlled
reservoir releases.  No significant river flooding is expected
during the next five days.
