Obviously I don't hope for any flooding but it doesn't sound like it should be that bad. Probably won't do much for water levels but it might be a little muddy out there this weekend now!

A flash flood watch has been issued for portions of northeast North Dakota and northwest Minnesota, beginning at 7 p.m. and continuing through Tuesday morning, according to the National Weather Service office in Grand Forks.

Cities in the flash flood watch including Hallock, Stephen, Argyle and Warren, Minn.; and Cando, Langdon, Cavalier, Maddock, Leeds, Devils Lake, Grafton, New Rockford, Lakota and Adams.

Counties in the watch are Kittson and western Marshall in Minnesota, and Benson, Cavalier, Walsh, Eddy, Nelson, Pembina, Ramsey and Towner in North Dakota.

Numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected tonight, with some occurring on areas that already have received higher rain amounts, the weather service says.

Rain amounts from 2 to 3 inches are possible along and west of a line from New Rockford to Hallock.

The primary threat will be to low-lying and flood-prone areas, and areas with poor drainage, as well as urban areas, the weather service says.

A flash flood watch means that flooding is possible but not imminent in the watch area.

I agree, I do not want to see any homes flooded or people hurt, but hopefully it can fill up some ponds without having any property ot people harmed, good luck up there.

If it dosent, MN always has water :wink:
we are talking about a couple of inches of rain here... there will be some run off but this late in the game all we are going to get out of this is some deep ruts on section line roads...

But do as many rain dances as you can...
It's pretty dry everywhere...some places probably not bad, other places really bad. But from what I've seen many wetlands that once held water are dry now or close to it...mostly just bigger water that is left.

since this is your second post I'll let you know that NO ONE is going to tell you what the hunting is like or anything regarding birds, conditions, ect... Plus, you can not post names of areas at all. Please read the Nodak rules of posting.

thanks and welcome again.
I want to be sure that I am not being too sarcastic when I mean pray for rain. We had around 4 inches in the last 3 days for North Central NoDak. There was some small sheet water patches in the low spots of fields but I anticipate that this will disappear after we have another windy day or two.

People on this forum will help you with habitat conditions, migrations status (not specific areas though), tactics and just general information about hunting in the state. This is a really useful tool if you are headed up our way but take some of the less subtle comments with a grain of salt...

Enjoy your trip...
