HYDROLOGIC STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SIOUX FALLS SD
1232 PM CST MON FEB 22 2016


.The following river forecasts include forecast precipitation through
tonight. Any additional future rains could affect the crest
forecasts.

Runoff from recent snow melt, in addition to some ice effects on area
rivers and streams, will lead to elevated river stages through much
of this week. No flooding is anticipated in these areas at this time,
but river levels could be near bank-full, and could see fluctuations of
1 to 2 feet due to ice.
