The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch for Pine, Aitkin, Carlton, St. Louis, Lake, S. Itasca, and N. Cook Counties until Thursday evening. 2-4" of rain is possible as a cold front stalls out and moisture is driven norhtward into the region. If we see over 3" of rain out of this system flooding may occur.
It is important not to cross flooded roads because the road could be washed out underneath the water. More flood fatalities happen in cars than any other cause.
