Flood watch in MN: 3-6 inches common and up to 10 inches possible

“By the end of the period, a widespread area of 1-3″ will be forecast from eastern SD and south-central MN up through northern MN with a maxima located across central and east-central MN where 3-6″ with locally as high as 10″ are plausible if there is considerable training in any given location within the confines of the warm front. The upper threshold of the setup near 10″ is supported by the latest 12z HREF neighborhood probability fields where a bullseye of 20-25% for at least 8″ exists north of the Minneapolis-St Paul metro.”


The forecast from the Weather Prediction Center says rain totals “as high as” 10 inches are possible over the next couple of days.
