FARGO, ND (KFGO AM) -- Finally, a break in the near-drought conditions.

A weather system that moved in over the weekend is bringing much needed rain to the region.

There's more rain in the forecast today.

The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch for much of eastern North Dakota and northwest Minnesota today.

That watch includes the Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo areas.

There's been a lot of thunderstorm activity across southeast North Dakota and western Minnesota.

They prompted some warnings earlier this morning.

The storms produced wind gusts of 60-to-70 mph as it moved through the LaMoure-Ellendale areas between 3:00 and 4:00 AM, downing some trees and large branches in the LaMoure-Ellendale areas.

Fargo tied a record Sunday picking up 1.16 inches of rainfall at the airport.

Rainfall amounts varied.

35-hundreths fell in south Moorhead, .60 in Horace,2-1/4 inches reported south of Detroit Lakes.

The last time the FM area had any significant rainfall was back on June 26th.

That storm produced more than 4 inches of rain and caused widespread street flooding and a lot of wet basements.
