There are currently no locations in Southeast Georgia or Southeast
South Carolina that fall into any drought classification according
to the U.S. Drought Monitor. Average 14-day streamflow is below
normal on the Savannah River and near normal elsewhere. There are
a couple of potential opportunities for light rainfall over the
next seven days, but total rainfall amounts for the week are not
expected to exceed half of an inch. The one month precipitation
outlook for March from the Climate Prediction Center indicates a
40 percent chance of above normal rainfall. The three month
precipitation outlook through May depicts equal chances for below
normal, near normal, or above normal rainfall. As such, there is a
near normal river flood potential through the rest of the spring.

The next Winter/Spring Flood Potential Outlook will be issued on
2 March 2017.
