A slow moving cold front continues to produce numerous showers and thunderstorms in the Upper Midwest and western Great Lakes. A rich feed of humidity has been funneling northward along the front, fueling the heavy rainfall. Flood Watches remain in effect from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to northeastern Missouri. An additional 1" to 2" of rain is possible through Thursday. Due to the already saturated ground from the rain that has occurred over the last week, rivers and streams will be susceptible to quick rises. There may be flooding in low-lying and poor drainage areas, including downstream of dams and other hydrological projects. For WeatherNation: Meteorologist Mace Michaels
