Anybody have any estimates on how much rain fell over night and how much the lake level has come up? Just wondering, out of town for a few days and saw a flood warning on the t.v. last night for St.Louis county.

There is a flash flood warning until 7am and rainfall has been between 1 to 2 inches per hour overnight, haven't seen any totals yet.

Has anyone seen rain totals yet?

Lake levels could use some help.

How is the overall lake level? Right before Labor day weekend, it was about 15" low. Has it come up at all with the recent rains?

I just talked to a friend from Cook and he said that they have gotten something like 16" of rain over the last couple of weeks and it was raining good now.

It must be coming back near normal now. Its still raining here in cloquet so it might be raining up there too.

Heard it was up 18 inches since Aug. Heavy rain today and the rivers and creeks are way over the banks so it may go to an all time high for this time of year in a few days.

I would say that as of yesterday we had gained about 7-8 inches from our low. Was gone all day so I can't say what it is for sure.

Yes, it's up about a foot over the past couple weeks. I think even if it quits raining, the lake will continue to rise for awhile, as the watershed which was parched got saturated with the first big shot and will now contribute to the lake (rather than soak in) from the ongoing rainfall. The lake is in better shape than I've seen it in 35 years this late in the summer.

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?

      Decided to hit a couple spots today. Water too high at the first spot so I went to spot number two.  Two so far after 20 minutes

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      St Louis county has something similar on their web sight (sic) https://gis.stlouiscountymn.gov/LandExplorer/
