northern Illinois. Scattered light rain around a tenth inch or
less was reported across Wisconsin and northern Indiana to lower

In the forecast...light rainfall amounts around a tenth inch or
less are expected in western North Dakota and into western Iowa
today, otherwise no sigificant precipitation is expected in our
region today. Wednesday into Thursday morning a storm system
approaching from our west with bring around an inch of rain into
Iowa and Missouri to western Illinois.
Rivers are responding to recent rainfall, but looks like most
locations will only reach bankfull, with little in the way of
flooding expected thus far across the region.
In North Dakota, warmer temperatures are producing snowmelt
rises and minor flooding is occuring in portions of the Souris
River basin. Moderate flooding is expected along the Souris in
the Towner, ND area. Flooding may reach the major level along
the Park River near Grafton, ND and the Pembina River near
Neche, ND within the next few days. Forecasts are highly
dependent on temperatures enhancing the melt and will be updated
as conditions warrant over the next few days.
