May 14: Quick Weather Update

No changes in weekend, just a matter of where the heaviest rain bands set up, but clearly some areas will get 1-2 inches with localized pockets above 2 inches like like week event it appears.

Today:  Speaking of 1 inch rains, northeastern North Dakota will have localized 1.50 inch amount it appears as the rain currently in that area will continue for most if not all of the afternoon and slowly dissipate tonight.   Southern Red River Valley will likely not see much beyond what already has fallen and therefore having some of the lower totals.  Much of Minnesota outside the NDAWN network will have 0.50 to 1.00 inch potential today as well, although, not all will get that much.

Rain through Noon
