ST. CLOUD - Flooding has been reported across Central Minnesota after 2-4 inches of rain fell through Friday night and Saturday morning.

Some isolated locations have seen over 4 inches of rain, including the Albany and Freeport area. County Road 157 between Freeport and Albany is reportedly closed due to flooding. There have also been reports of water flowing over some rural roads in Stearns County.

The National Weather Service says you shouldn't drive in areas where the water covers the road. The water depth may be too much to allow your vehicle to cross safely.

Scattered thunderstorms and several inches of rain is expected through Central Minnesota for much of the weekend.
