Expected Rainfall this Week

The thought of any additional rainfall may make those who suffered from significant flooding a week and a half ago a little nervous.  But the good news is the rainfall expected this week won't be as significant as it's been with past storms. 

With any thunderstorms that develop, the risk of heavier downpours will always be present.  However, the heaviest rainfall associated with this next storm system will fall north of the low
pressure system's track.  This places the heaviest rain corridor over Wisconsin, Minnesota and northern Iowa.  There, a couple inches of rain could occur between now and the end of Thursday.  The second image on the left is from the Weather Prediction Center three day rainfall outlook.

Following the passage of the low Thursday night, skies will remain cloudy with scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms into the weekend.
