OUTLOOK:
TEMPERATURES IN THE 50S TODAY WILL RESULT IN INCREASED RUNOFF FROM
SNOWMELT. THIS WILL LIKELY CONTINUE TO BREAK AND MELT THE EXISTING
ICE COVER...ESPECIALLY ON RIVERS ALONG AND SOUTH OF I-80. OTHER
RIVERS WITH NEAR 100 PERCENT ICE COVER MAY BEGIN TO SEE SOME MELT
AND BREAKUP AS WELL. OVERNIGHT TEMPERATURES WILL BE FALLING BACK
BELOW FREEZING AGAIN BY MIDWEEK BUT REBOUNDING AGAIN BY LATE IN THE
WEEK. AS INCREASED FLOWS BENEATH THE ICE COVER BEGIN TO LIFT AND
BREAK THE ICE...ICE JAMS AND ICE JAM FLOODING ARE POSSIBLE.
