HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HASTINGS NE
929 AM CDT SAT JUN 14 2014

...THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN HASTINGS HAS ISSUED A HYDROLOGIC
OUTLOOK FOR POTENTIAL RIVER FLOODING...

.THE PLATTE RIVER GAUGE NEAR KEARNEY INDICATES THE RIVER IS CRESTING
AT 5.9 FEET. THE CURRENT FORECAST INDICATES THAT THE RIVER WILL BEGIN
TO RECEDE TONIGHT AND CONTINUE A SLOW DECREASE INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.
THERE IS A RISK FOR ONE OR TWO ROUNDS OF THUNDERSTORMS VERY LATE THIS
AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT. IF WIDESPREAD HEAVY RAINFALL OCCURS...RUN-OFF
INTO THE PLATTE RIVER COULD PUSH THE RIVER SLIGHTLY ABOVE 6.0
FEET...WHICH WOULD INITIATE MINOR FLOODING. PEOPLE WITH INTERESTS
ALONG THE PLATTE RIVER...THROUGH SOUTHERN BUFFALO COUNTY...SHOULD
CONTINUE MONITORING THE RIVER LEVEL.

THIS HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK IS BASED ON BOTH OBSERVED AND FORECAST
PRECIPITATION. THE RIVERS MAY RESPOND DIFFERENTLY THAN INDICATED...IF
ACTUAL PRECIPITATION IS GREATER OR LESS THAN EXPECTED.

LATER STATEMENTS...POSSIBLY WARNINGS...WILL BE ISSUED AS ADDITIONAL
INFORMATION BECOMES AVAILABLE.
