Flood Risk Low

The lack of a snowpack, continued drought, and abnormally dry conditions throughout much of Minnesota are keeping the spring flood risk low.

National Weather Service hydrologist Craig Schmidt says it will take something like some major rainfall or some late-season snow followed by heavy rain or something like that in order for us to get much in the way of flooding.

Now is typically the time of year when the depth of the snowpack and risk of ice jams on rivers precipitates spring flooding.

Schmidt says the long-range forecast for March through May calls for above-normal temperatures.
