An upper-level trough moving eastward will push the fronts and
moisture plume east through the Middle and Lower Mississippi
Valley today, ending the heavy rainfall threat there. As the
surface low pressure system strengthens in the Upper Midwest
today, rain will continue for the Upper Great Lakes region, as
well as parts of the Ohio Valley ahead of the front. 1 to 2 inches
of rain, with locally higher amounts, is expected. A Slight Risk
of excessive rainfall/flash flooding is in place for the Upper
Peninsula of Michigan and northeastern Wisconsin.

This will be the last storm summary issued by the Weather
Prediction Center for this event. Please refer to your local
National Weather service office for additional information.
