Hydrometeorological Forecast Discussion
NWS North Central River Forecast Center Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
1128 AM CDT Tue Jul 26 2016


A few areas of showers and thunderstorms produced one to two
inches of rain mainly yesterday afternoon through early this
morning.  The strongest storms moved from northeast North Dakota
to the Arrowhead region of Minnesota, from southwest North Dakota
to west central Minnesota, and across southern Missouri to central
and southern Illinois.

In the forecast...scattered showers and thunderstorm will continue
in these areas this morning and move east and southward. Rainfall
totals will average around a quarter to half inch across the
Dakotas through central Minnesota across northern Wisconsin and
Upper Michigan.   Scattered showers and thunderstorms will also
continue along the southern portion of our region along a stalled
front from southeast Missouri to southern Illinois.

...Hydrologic Conditions...

There are currently no forecast points above flood stage in the
NCRFC area and no flooding is forecast.

Multiple rounds of heavy rain in recent weeks have caused elevated
flows on many rivers across eastern North Dakota, Minnesota,
Wisconsin, Iowa and Illinois.

The Mississippi River remains at elevated levels along its entire
length within the NCRFC region. The river is at or near action
stage at many sites from Minnesota downstream through Iowa,
Illinois and Missouri.

Locations across the region that are already experiencing high
river levels will remain vulnerable to additional flooding if
rainfall totals or intensity in the next week become excessive.

For additional and more in-depth information concerning river
forecasts, precipitation and all hydrometeorological information
