Yesterday afternoon through early this morning scattered
thunderstorms and showers produced rainfall over Western and
Central Minnesota and Northern Iowa.  While most rainfall totaled
between 0.5 and 1 inch, areas in central and southwest Minnesota
and northern Iowa saw totals as high as 3.75 inches.  Isolated
showers were also observed over the Upper Peninsula and northern
Lower Michigan, with total precipitation reaching 0.3 inches.

In the forecast...rain will move east into Wisconsin. Widespread
rain is expected, with totals ranging from less than a tenth to
1.25 inches.   Light rain is also expected throughout much of Iowa
and northern Lower Michigan.

...Hydrologic Conditions...

There is no significant flooding occurring and none is expected in
the next 5 days. With areas of heavy rainfall observed across the
eastern Dakotas and Minnesota in the last 2 days and moving
eastward in to the Great Lakes region over the next couple of
days, rises on northern rivers are anticipated.  However, only
isolated minor flooding and bankfull rises are anticipated at this
time. We will monitor conditions and issue updates to river
forecasts as needed.
