Hydrometeorological Forecast Discussion
NWS North Central River Forecast Center Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
1148 AM CDT Sun Sep 24 2017


During the past 24 hours, most of the Dakotas and parts of
Minnesota had rainfall.  Beyond these three states, the remaining
portion of the NCRFC service area remained dry.  As in yesterday`s
forecast, the heaviest rainfall occurred in the tri-state region
of the Dakotas and Minnesota, where several observations of
2.5" to 3.0" were reported. The northern half of Minnesota and
western half of North Dakota had widespread amounts generally
around one half to three quarters of an inch.

Rainfall is expected to continue across the same region, but
slightly east during the next 24 hours. Heaviest amounts will
occur over much of western Minnesota within the NCRFC area.
Expect amounts to be around 0.5" to 1.0".

...Hydrologic Conditions...

We now have three active forecast points along the
North Dakota-Minnesota border area after 2 to 5 inches of rain
this past week, and with another 0.5 to 1.0 inches of
rain on tap. Rivers in this area will be on the rise this week,
some to around bankfull, and possibly a little higher, before
beginning to fall toward next weekend.

The remainder of the NCRFC service remains quiet.
