HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS NORTH CENTRAL RIVER FORECAST CENTER TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
1159 AM CDT SAT AUG 30 2014

...PRECIPITATION...

OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS...RAIN FELL ONCE AGAIN OVER MUCH OF THE
UPPER MIDWEST...AND...ONCE AGAIN...AMOUNTS WERE QUITE VARIABLE DUE
TO THE CONVECTIVE NATURE OF THE STORMS THAT PRODUCED THESE RAINS.
OVERALL...THE MOST SIGNIFICANT RAINS FELL IN PORTIONS OF NORTHERN
AND CENTRAL WISCONSIN...PLUS SOME PARTS OF SOUTHERN MINNESOTA.
SEVERAL SITES IN THE AFOREMENTIONED AREAS RECEIVED 2 TO 3 INCHES
OF RAIN...WHILE ELLSWORTH IN WEST-CENTRAL WISCONSIN CAME IN WITH
THE HIGHEST REPORT OF 4.4 INCHES.

THE WEATHER SYSTEM THAT PRODUCED LAST NIGHT`S RAINS IS MOVING
EAST AND BECOMING LESS POTENT TODAY...WHILE OUT WEST A NEW SYSTEM
IS FORECAST TO BRING SOME GENERALLY LIGHT RAINS TO NORTH DAKOTA.
ISOLATED HEAVIER AMOUNTS ARE STILL POSSIBLE OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS
...ESPECIALLY UP NORTH...BUT MOST RAIN AMOUNTS ARE ONLY EXPECTED
TO BE IN THE GENERAL RANGE OF ABOUT AN INCH OR LESS.

...HYDROLOGIC CONDITIONS...

THE THREAT FOR HEAVY RAINFALL OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS HAS
DIMINISHED SIGNIFICANTLY...AS HAS THE THREAT FOR ANY SIGNIFICANT
RIVER FLOODING. LOCATIONS THAT HAVE SEEN THE HEAVIEST RAIN IN THE
LAST 24 HOURS ARE SHOWING RISES...BUT NO NEW FLOODING IS
FORECAST...AND NO SIGNIFICANT FLOODING IS EXPECTED IN THE NEXT 5
DAYS.

HOWEVER...LOCALLY HEAVY RAINS ASSOCIATED WITH A STRONG COLD FRONT
MOVING ACROSS THE REGION SUNDAY INTO MONDAY COULD PRODUCE FLOODING
IN SMALLER WATERSHEDS AND URBAN AREAS...ESPECIALLY IN PLACES THAT
HAVE SEEN PRECIPITATION OVER THE LAST FEW DAYS.  PEOPLE WHO ARE
ENGAGING IN OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES THIS HOLIDAY WEEKEND SHOULD REMAIN
ALERT FOR CHANGING CONDITIONS.
