Hydrometeorological Forecast Discussion
NWS North Central River Forecast Center Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
1110 AM CST Thu Feb 22 2018

Major and record flooding continue on tributaries throughout
Lower Michigan and northern Illinois. The mainstem Illinois
river will be experiencing major flooding on the central and
lower portions of the river soon.

Most of the tributaries are near peak stages and without
any more rainfall conditions should be more stable in
the next couple days.

There is another potential event as heavy rainfall is
expected for our southern region. However recently the
QPF looks to stay more south which could limit any
significant flooding.

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