1052 AM CDT THU APR 16 2015

...PRECIPITATION...

A LARGE UPPER LEVEL LOW OVER THE FOUR CORNERS AREA WILL DRIFT
SLOWLY NORTHEAST FOR THE NEXT WEEK OR SO.

IN THE PAST 24 HOURS...SCATTERED SHOWERS DROPPED LIGHT RAIN OVER
MINNESOTA...IOWA...MISSOURI...MICHIGAN...INDIANA...AND EASTERN
ILLINOIS.  AMOUNTS WERE GENERALLY UNDER A QUARTER OF AN INCH.

SOME MORE LIGHT RAIN IS POSSIBLE FOR THE NCRFC AREA IN THE NEXT 24
HOURS...MOSTLY OVER MICHIGAN AND INDIANA.  RAIN WILL APPROACH
WESTERN IOWA ON DAY 2 AND POSSIBLY COVER THE WESTERN HALF OF THE
NCRFC REGION ON DAY 3...IF THE LARGE UPPER LOW MAINTAINS ITS TRACK
AND SPEED. WE COULD SEE SOME MORE LIGHT TO MODERATE RAIN ON DAYS
4 AND 5 DEPENDING ON THE TRACK AND STRENGTH OF THE UPPER LOW.

...HYDROLOGIC CONDITIONS...

ON THE SOURIS RIVER IN NORTH DAKOTA WATER LEVELS CONTINUE NEAR
FLOOD STAGE FOR A NUMBER OF LOCATIONS DOWNSTREAM OF MINOT
TO WESTHOPE.  UPSTREAM AT LAKE DARLING THE RELEASES ARE NOW HIGH
ENOUGH TO CAUSE FOXHOLM TO REACH MODERATE LEVELS.  THIS WAS DUE
TO THE SNOW MELT WATER COMING IN FROM UPSTREAM.  THESE LEVELS
WILL CONTINUE FOR A NUMBER OF DAYS.

MINOR FLOODING CONTINUES IN WISCONSIN AND MICHIGAN.
