.Overview...Some of the rivers in southwest Minnesota have crested
or were beginning to fall. The Minnesota and Mississippi will continue
to rise over the next few days. One trend with the current forecast is
that the heaviest rainfall is now forecast to affect northwest Minnesota.
If this were to verify the additional runoff will cause rivers to rise,
but limit the potential of higher end flooding. We will continue to
monitor the forecast for any changes.


Do not drive cars through flooded areas.  Turn Around...Don`t Drown.

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio or your local radio or TV station
