...PRECIPITATION...

DURING THE PAST 24-HOURS LIGHT RAIN FELL FROM MISSOURI TO LOWER
MICHIGAN. RAINFALL TOTALS WERE GENERALLY A QUARTER INCH OR LESS.

DURING THE NEXT 24-HOURS...A LARGE AREA OF PRECIPITATION GENERALLY
IN THE FORM OF RAIN IS FORECAST FOR MISSOURI...ILLINOIS...INDIANA
...WISCONSIN AND MUCH OF MICHIGAN. RAINFALL  TOTALS OF 1 - 2
INCHES ARE POSSIBLE OVER A LARGE AREA IN THIS REGION.

...HYDROLOGIC CONDITIONS...

NO FLOODING IS OCCURRING IN THE NCRFC AREA AT THE MOMENT.  A
HANDFUL OF LOCATIONS ARE EXPERIENCING BANK-FULL RISES DUE TO
FREEZE-UP ICE JAMS... AND MANY RIVERS IN THE REGION ARE SEEING
A TEMPORARY REDUCTION IN FLOW DUE TO ICE FORMATION.

WITH THIS WEEKEND`S WARM UP AND RAIN EVENT... LOCATIONS IN
ILLINOIS... WISCONSIN... AND MICHIGAN MAY SEE BANK-FULL TO NEAR
FLOOD CONDITIONS FROM RAIN AND SNOW MELT RUNOFF.  ICE AFFECTS
ARE LIKELY TO BE REDUCED AS THE RELATIVELY FRESH ICE SHOULD MELT
AND-OR BREAK UP EASILY.  STILL... THERE REMAINS A POSSIBILITY OF
ADDITIONAL ICE JAMS WITH THE INCREASED FLOW... AND ESPECIALLY AS
WE ENTER ANOTHER COLD PERIOD THROUGH THE WEEK.
