RIVER FORECAST
NWS NORTH CENTRAL RIVER FORECAST CENTER TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
941 AM CST MON FEB 20 2017

: THIS PRODUCT HAS PRELIMINARY DATA THAT MAY BE SUBJECT TO REVISION.
: REFER TO YOUR LOCAL WFO FOR THE LATEST OFFICIAL RIVER FORECAST.
: NOTE...  This product includes observed precipitation, plus
:          forecast precipitation for the next 48 Hours.

: ------------------------------------------------------------
: Continued warm temperatures and windy and rainy conditions
: today may generate enough melt energy to cause rivers to
: continue to rise...
:
: Rises to FIS and FS are possible by mid to late week.
:
: There is a lot of uncertainty in the forecasts issued this morning.
: Warm, windy, rainy conditions which are favorable for snowmelt
: are forecast for today... followed by a significant period of
: cold air temperatures later this week.  This may cause runoff to
: freeze in the drainage networks, rivers, and streams, rather than
: flow downstream.  In that case, the rivers may not rise as high as
: our forecasts.
:
: There is still ice present in area rivers and streams...
: Ice affected river gages do not give a good indication of actual
: flow in the channel.  Rating Curves require open water in order
: to be used to estimate flows.
:
: 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.
