National Weather Service -- Spring Flood Outlook for 2019

For much of the area, there is an much-above-normal risk for minor and moderate flooding this spring. Also there is an increased threat for major flooding.  This is largely the result of high soil moisture, elevated river levels and an increasing snowpack. As is typically the case, the location and severity of flooding this spring will depend on the location and intensity of spring rains and thunderstorms.  For the complete outlook, click the link below:
