Hydrometeorological Forecast Discussion
NWS North Central River Forecast Center Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
1030 AM CDT Tue Oct 25 2016


Yesterday quiet conditions prevailed across the region with some light rain
across upper and lower Michigan.  The picture is about to change today as a low
pressure system is moving out of the Rockies and into the Mississippi River
Valley by tomorrow morning.  A widespread rain event will bring 1 to 2 inches
over most of Iowa, southern Minnesota, and western Wisconsin.  In day two the
forecast calls for the system to progress east and continuing to bring 1 to 2
inches over eastern Wisconsin and lower Michigan.  Missouri, northern Illinois,
and northern Indiana are expected to see lighter amounts ranging from 0.5 inch
to just over an inch.  Dry condition and high pressure will build back in
following this storm later in the week.

...Hydrologic Conditions...

No rivers within the NCRFC area are above flood stage.  With the impending
weather system expected to move across the northern states, rivers will begin to
rise over the next 24 to 48 hours.  Some minor flooding is possible in Iowa,
Wiscosin and northern Illinois.
