Hydrometeorological Forecast Discussion
NWS North Central River Forecast Center Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
232 PM CDT Sun May 19 2019

Closed low spinning around the Upper Midwest resulting in widespread
rain, thunderstorms, and even some snow. Amounts were widespread, but
actual reports ended up not being quite as much as previously thought
for most locations. Thus, many forecasts were able to be lowered.
But there were spots that did see rather heavy amounts, and thus
forecasts in those local areas did increase.

Overall, the wet weather pattern looks to continue as we move through
the week...


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