DULUTH, Minnesota - Duluth is getting more rain, but forecasters say it's not likely to cause major problems for the recently flooded city.

The National Weather Service in Duluth says about a quarter-inch of rain had fallen by noon Saturday.

Isolated thunderstorms are possible, but meteorologist Dean Melde says it doesn't look like anything as serious as the heavy rains that led to flash flooding and caused evacuations and infrastructure damage throughout the region earlier in the week.

Floodwaters continue to recede throughout northeastern Minnesota and evacuees are returning to their homes to start cleaning up.

The weather service says while most floodwaters are receding, the Mississippi River continues to rise thanks to massive flood runoff. That could cause additional flooding in low-lying areas in the coming days.
