US Hazards Thursday. April 28, 2016US Hazards


Region 1

An upper level system is forecast to move across Region 1.

Region 2

Thunderstorms are expected to develop late this afternoon and into the evening along and south of a warm front. Deep moisture and slow movement of the storms will allow for the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Widespread rainfall accumulations of 1-2 inches can be expected through much of the Red River Valley with locally higher amounts in excess of 3 inches possible. Given recent heavy rains in this area, additional heavy rainfall may lead to flooding.
