HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL FORECAST DISCUSSION  
NWS NORTH CENTRAL RIVER FORECAST CENTER TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN  
1048 AM CDT TUE MAY 22 2018  
 
YESTERDAY'S STORM SYSTSEM BROUGHT SOME RAIN TO THE REGION, WITH THE  
HIGHEST AMOUNTS FROM NORTHEAST ILLINOIS, ACROSS LAKE MICHIGAN AND  
INTO SOUTHERN LOWER MICHIGAN. AMOUNTS FROM A HALF-INCH UP A LITTLE  
OVER 2 INCHES WERE REPORTED, WITH THE HIGHEST AMOUNTS FOUND AROUND  
THE GREATER CHICAGO AREA.  
 
THIS RAINFALL CAUSED SOME QUICK RISES FOR THE DES PLAINES RIVER AND  
ITS TRIBUTARIES IN AND AROUND THE CHICAGO AREA, WITH SOME FLOODING.  
BUT THE RIVERS ARE CRESTING OR PAST CREST NOW.  
 
OTHERWISE, THE FLOODING CONCERNS CONTINUE TO WANE FOR MOST AREAS,  
WITH THE MAJORITY OF CREEKS AND RIVERS IN OUR SERVICE AREA IN  
RECESSION. WE ARE MONITORING RAIN POTENTIAL THROUGH THE WEEK TO SEE  
IF THIS TREND REVERSES ITSELF.  
 
RIVER FORECASTS ROUTINELY INCORPORATE 24 HOURS OF QPF FROM  
APRIL 1 TO SEPTEMBER 30 AND 48 HOURS FROM OCTOBER 1 TO MARCH 31.
