...PRECIPITATION...
IN THE LAST 24 HOURS A FRONT MOVED OVER NORTHERN NORTH DAKOTA AND
MINNESOTA.  SOME AREAS RECEIVED AMOUNTS OVER 4 INCHES. WITH THE
SOUTHERN PART OF THIS SYSTEM EXTENDING SOUTH DOWN TO CENTRAL
MINNESOTA.

FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS THIS STORM MOVES ON TO THE NORTHEAST.  WITH
MINOR AMOUNTS OF PRECIPITATION EXPECTED OVER MICHIGAN.  WHILE TO
THE SOUTH A FRONT WITH HIGHER AMOUNTS IN THE 0.5 INCH RANGE IS
EXPECTED OVER SOUTH CENTRAL ILLINOIS.

...HYDROLOGIC CONDITIONS...

THE BAND OF HEAVY RAIN THAT FELL IN NORTHWEST MINNESOTA LAST
NIGHT HAS CAUSED SHARP FLOOD STAGE RISES ON THE SNAKE RIVER...
WHICH WILL LIKELY ONLY LAST FOR A DAY OR SO.

LEVELS ARE STILL SOMEWHAT HIGH ON PARTS OF THE ILLINOIS RIVER
AND ON MUCH OF THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER IN ILLINOIS AND MISSOURI...
BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT ALL THE LOCATIONS ARE CONTINUING
TO RECEDE. ISOLATED POSSIBLY HEAVY STORMS MAY DEVELOP IN NORTHEAST
MISSOURI INTO CENTRAL ILLINOIS THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING WHICH
COULD TEMPORARILY CAUSE PROBLEMS.

MODERATE FLOODING CONTINUES ON THE SOURIS RIVER IN NORTH DAKOTA
FROM ABOUT TOWNER DOWNSTREAM. LEVELS ARE FORECAST TO GRADUALLY
FALL THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEK.
