Hydrometeorological Forecast Discussion
NWS North Central River Forecast Center Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
1145 AM CST Sat Feb 24 2018

Major to record flooding to major flooding continues for the
tributaries of Michigan and Illinois along with the mainstem
Illinois River. With little new rainfall these sited should
be allowed to crest at the forecast peaks and recede in the
day or so.

Heavy rainfall in the very southern portion of the NCRFC
could create additional flooding on the Meramec River in
Missouri and moderate flooding on the Big Muddy River
at Murphysburo Illinois.

The cumulative effect of all the high rivers is pushing
the mainstem Mississippi bankfull conditions and minor
flooding.

River forecasts routinely incorporate 24 hours of QPF from
April 1 to September 30 and 48 hours from October 1 to March 31.
