abnormally warm weather has been steadily melting snow over the
past several days. This in combination with recent rainfall will
result in rises on the Mississippi River. An ice jam downstream
has appeared to have broken up with current levels back below

minor flood stage early Wednesday morning. People with interests
near area streams and rivers are encouraged to monitor the latest
forecast.
