What is the Spring Flood Outlook?

The spring season is typically the season with the highest risk for river flooding. Thus, the National Weather Service determines flood risk across the country and provides the Spring Flood and Water Resources Outlook at this time every year. This outlook contains information about the potential for flooding throughout the spring months. The information can help decision makers and those with river interests prepare, in order to protect life and property.
