:Ice jams are very common at Oslo and cannot be ruled out.
:The effect of a possible ice jam is not included in this
:forecast. Previous break-up ice jams have added 5 ft or
:more to an open-water crest. The accumulating freezing
:degree days this year are significantly lower than during
:these past break-up jams, so we may not see such severity
:this year.
