Hydrometeorological Forecast Discussion
NWS North Central River Forecast Center Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
1221 PM CDT Tue Aug 22 2017


Nearly all of the NCRFC area had some form of precipitation in the
past 24 hours.  For the most part, amounts were less than a half-
inch with the exception of western Iowa and a narrow band of high
accumulations in northern Missouri through central Illinois.  Some
of these areas with the heavier precipitation had amounts in
excess of three to four inches within the NCRFC area.

Rainfall that was occurring over the NCRFC area this morning has
now moved out of the service area for the most part.  Some light
scattered showers remain over Lower Michigan.  Little to no
relevant rainfall accumulation is expected over NCRFC during the
next 24 hours.

...Hydrologic Conditions...

The Minnesota and South Fork Crow Rivers are rising slowly to
bankfull crests due to heavy rains last Wednesday.  Otherwise
there is no significant flooding currently occurring within the
NCRFC service area.  With very little rain in the forecast, no
flooding is expected in the area for the next five days.
