945 AM CST THU FEB 23 2017

...The flood warning continues for the following rivers in
Minnesota...

  Mississippi River Near Fort Ripley affecting Crow Wing and Morrison
  Counties

.Snowmelt water and rainfall from this past Monday will flow through
streams, rivers, and tributaries through this week. The abnormally
warm weather has been steadily melting snow over the past several
days. This in combination with up to three quarters of an inch of
rainfall from Monday will result in modest rises on the Mississippi
River. An ice jam downstream has appeared to have broken up with
current levels back below flood stage. However, forecasts still
have water levels rising to minor flood stage Sunday. People with
interests near area streams and rivers are encouraged to monitor
the latest forecast.
