Hydrometeorological Forecast Discussion
NWS North Central River Forecast Center Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
1030 AM CDT Mon May 21 2018

A slow moving weather system brought some rain and thunderstorms to
the region over the past 24 hours. The most significant rains were
seen across Missouri and Illinios, where amounts from a half-inch up
to around 2 inches were seen.

Overall, significant flooding concerns are waning for most areas,
with most creeks and rivers in the region in recession. However, this
new rainfall will cause some upward movement again, especially where
the heavier rains fell.

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