...PROLONGED PERIOD OF RAINFALL OVER EASTERN MINNESOTA AND MOST OF
NORTHWEST WISCONSIN TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT...

.A prolonged period of moderate to at times heavy rainfall, along
with periods of thunderstorms will affect east central Minnesota
and most of northwest Wisconsin tonight into Monday night.
Rainfall is expected to result in rises in local rivers, creeks,
and streams that are already running high from recent rains and
snow melt. In addition, ground conditions are already fairly
saturated due to recent rains and snowmelt, so rainfall on top of
these conditions will lead to additional runoff into the river
system and tributaries. Total rainfall by Monday night of between
one to two inches is forecast. Rivers with highest threat of
flooding include, but are not limited to, the Bad River and
tributaries, the Montreal River, and Whittlesey Creek.
