.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Rises in area rivers and streams will continue, leading to
flooding concerns. Flooding is expected this week along portions
of the Mississippi River, and a Flood Warning remains in effect
for the Mississippi river at Aitkin.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

A wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain Wednesday night may
lead to slick spots, primarily for areas along and north of the Iron
Range and along the North Shore of Lake Superior.

Area rivers and streams will rise through the upcoming week due
to snowmelt and runoff from the recent spring storm. Additional
rainfall is expected later this week which will add further
runoff. Some flooding is expected this week along portions of the
Mississippi River. A Flood Warning is in effect for the
Mississippi River at Aitkin.


For the month of March we are actively recruiting for CoCoRaHS,
the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail, and Snow network. If you
