Heavy Snow Will Result in River Rises

Check out the recent snowfall totals from May 2nd. Yikes! These totals in much of southeast MN equate to about 1.25″-2.00″ of stored liquid about to release in a hurry as we warm up into the weekend. The MBWW gauge is already getting a bit bouncy from the recent rain turned snowfall, and we’re in for more rain through Saturday, then occasional showers Sunday before this stinking storm system departs. It’s always hard to say for sure, but it may prove difficult (note, not impossible) to find non-chocolatey water this weekend.
