The National Weather Service in Duluth has canceled a flood advisory for Northeastern Minnesota and Douglas County in Wisconsin.

Heavy rain is expected to slowly move out of the region through the day today and reduce the risk of floods occurring, although many streams are full and running fast and still some are rising.

A flood advisory remains in effect for Bayfield, Ashland and Iron counties in Wisconsin with some areas there inundated. The weather service says that area may have received another half-inch of rain today and that as much as 7 inches have fallen in some of those areas since Friday.

Some low-lying roads remain closed in that area and some streams there still are rising. In Glidden, parts of Highway 13 are closed and River Road in Odanah is closed, the weather service reported this morning.

Another half-inch of rain is possible yet today, with rain ending Wednesday; sunny skies are forecast for Thursday into the weekend.
