Hydrologic Outlook

SPRING RIVER FLOODING NOT YET EXPECTED TO BEGIN...

The strong winter storm set to impact the region this week is not expected to initiate spring river flooding across the Red River Basin.

Many locations across the region are expected to receive high amounts of liquid precipitation with this storm system. This precipitation will fall as rain (potentially heavy) and freezing rain before transitioning to snow across the far southern Red River Valley and into west and north central Minnesota. Any rain that does fall is expected to soak into the current snowpack and not run directly into the river system at this time. However, ponding of water on roadways is possible along with minor urban flooding due to plugged storm drains.
