National Weather Service issues flood watch for much of Minnesota as heavy rain is expected

Heavy and persistent rain expected over the next two days has raised concerns about flooding, and the National Weather Service has issued a flood watch for most of Minnesota, in effect until late Tuesday night.

By the weekend, some areas of the state could receive more than 6 inches of rain, the National Weather Service said.

"Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers, creeks, streams and other low-lying and flood-prone locations," the Weather Service said. "Be prepared to take action should flash flood warnings be issued."
