Light rain continued to fall most of today and the weather service has posted a flood watch for most of the viewing area through tonight as there is the potential for overland flooding and rises in some creeks and rivers.

Greg Gust, National Weather Service: "Now the ground is completely dried out so it will be more likely to erode some of the road beds and cause damage to some of the bridge structures as it passes through."

Gust says rainfall amounts in Northeastern North Dakota ranged from 2 to 5 inches.
