...PROLONGED PERIODS OF HEAVY RAINFALL MAY LEAD TO FLOODING EARLY  
NEXT WEEK...  
 
A STALLED FRONTAL BOUNDARY EXTENDING FROM THE PLAINS TO NORTHERN  
GREAT LAKES WILL FOCUS A CORRIDOR OF NEARLY CONTINUOUS RAINFALL,  
OCCASIONALLY HEAVY, ACROSS THE UPPER MIDWEST FROM SUNDAY NIGHT  
THROUGH EARLY WEDNESDAY.  
 
WIDESPREAD RAINFALL AMOUNTS WILL RANGE FROM 2 TO 3 INCHES THROUGH  
WEDNESDAY, BUT A CORRIDOR OF 4 TO 6 INCHES COULD SET UP SOMEWHERE  
ACROSS SOUTHERN AND EASTERN MINNESOTA INTO WESTERN AND NORTHERN  
WISCONSIN.  
 
THIS RAIN WILL CAUSE RISES ON RIVERS AND STREAMS AND WILL LIKELY  
LEAD TO FLOODING IN SOME AREAS, ESPECIALLY IN THE CORRIDOR OF  
HEAVIEST RAINFALL. IN ADDITION, LOWLAND FLOODING MAY ALSO OCCUR  
AS THE GROUND QUICKLY BECOMES SATURATED. KEEP UPDATED ON THE  
LATEST FORECAST FOR ANY FUTURE WATCHES AND WARNINGS.
