Hydrometeorological Forecast Discussion
NWS North Central River Forecast Center Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
1049 AM CDT Tue Apr 24 2018

Snowmelt across the northern states continues to cause an increase in
river flooding in the region.  With little to light precipitation
expected over the next several days an ideal melt scenario is
occuring across many of the smaller river systems.

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