Flash flood watch in effect for Northeastern Minnesota
The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for Northeastern Minnesota through Monday evening as a strong, slow-moving storm system may be bring several inches of rain to the region.
The watch includes Duluth, Cloquet, the North Shore, the Iron Range, Grand Rapids, Aitkin and International Falls.
The storm system has a lot of moisture to work with; that, combined with its slow movement, may lead to very heavy rainfall in some areas - possibly as much as 4 inches, the Weather Service reported.
That could lead to localized flash flooding along ditches, streams and rivers, and in poorly drained areas.
There is a slight risk for severe weather today for central and southern Minnesota, including the Twin Cities. Some strong storms may reach southern portions of the Northland.
