In the last 24 hours the low over the NCRFC area produced
widespread rainfall over southern Minnesota and Wisconsin...
Iowa...Illinois...northern Indiana and lower Michigan.
Accumulations of a half an inch to an inch and a half were
very common for all locations.
In the next 24 hours the low will continue to wrap around the
central portion of the NCRFC but total accumulations should be
in general a tenth to a few tenths of an inch.
The heavy rain that fell in central Iowa is causing some rises in
the Des Moines River watershed although they are expected to stay
below moderate flood stage. The rain threat migrating away from
this area in the next few days will also help the flooding
