HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS NORTH CENTRAL RIVER FORECAST CENTER TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
1210 PM CDT SUN APR 20 2014

...PRECIPITATION...

DURING THE PAST 24 HOURS... RAIN WITH SOME SNOW MIXED WITH SLEET
MOVED ACROSS NORTHERN MINNESOTA AND NORTHERN WISCONSIN
TO UPPER MICHIGAN AND NORTHERN LOWER MICHIGAN. THE HEAVIER BANDS
OF PRECIPITATION TOTALS HERE WERE A QUARTER TO A HALF INCH.
ANOTHER BAND OF SHOWERS EXTEND SOUTHWESTWARD ALONG THE FRONT
ACROSS WISCONSIN AND SOUTHEAST MINNESOTA TO NORTHWEST IOWA.
PRECIPITATION TOTALS IN THIS AREA WERE LESS THAN A TENTH INCH WITH
A FEW ISOLATED REPORTS OF AROUND A THIRD OF AN INCH.

DURING THE NEXT 24-HOURS...STORMS WILL CONTINUE TO DEVELOP AND
MOVE EASTWARD FROM IOWA AND MINNESOTA INTO CENTRAL WISCONSIN AND
NORTHERN LOWER MICHIGAN. THE HEAVIEST BAND WILL BE CENTERED AROUND
LA CROSSE WI WHERE ABOUT AN INCH OF RAIN IS POSSIBLE. OTHERWISE A
THIRD OF AN INCH IS FORECAST FOR THIS AREA.


...HYDROLOGIC CONDITIONS...

AFTER AN ACTIVE WEEK OF MODERATE AND MAJOR FLOODING...ESPECIALLY
IN MICHIGAN...ALL OF OUR RIVERS HAVE RETREATED BACK INTO THE
MINOR FLOODING CATEGORY OR LOWER. MOST LOCATIONS ARE NOW IN
RECESSION ACROSS OUR REGION...AND THE FORECASTED RAIN OVER THE NEXT
FEW DAYS DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE ENOUGH TO TURN THEM AROUND.
THE MISSISSIPPI CONTINUES TO RISE AT SOME LOCATIONS TODAY...BUT
ONLY MINOR ADDITIONAL RISES ARE ANTICIPATED GOING INTO THE MIDDLE
OF THE WEEK OR SO.
