HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK

...MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF MODERATE RAIN DURING MIDWEEK...

THE WEATHER PATTERN ACROSS THE REGION TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH
THURSDAY IS ONE THAT WILL FAVOR A COUPLE WAVES OF MODERATE TO
POSSIBLY HEAVY RAINFALL. CONFIDENCE IS FAIRLY HIGH IN MUCH OF THE
AREA SEEING AT LEAST AN INCH AND A HALF OF RAIN DURING THAT TIME.
ALTHOUGH UNCERTAINTY STILL EXISTS IN WHICH LOCATIONS MAY SEE TWO
TO TWO AND A HALF INCHES OF RAIN...THERE ARE INCREASING CONCERNS
THAT AT LEAST A PORTION OF THE AREA WILL. SOIL MOISTURE REMAINS
HIGH FOR THIS EARLY IN THE SPRING SEASON...AND SOME AREA STREAMS
ARE ALSO RUNNING HIGHER THAN NORMAL. RUNOFF FROM THIS HEAVY
RAINFALL MAY RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT RISES AND POSSIBLE FLOODING ON
AREA STREAMS AND RIVERS. THERE IS ALSO THE POTENTIAL FOR AREAL
FLOODING NAMELY IN AND AROUND DITCHES AND LOW-LYING FIELDS.

THOSE WITH INTERESTS ALONG RIVERS SHOULD REMAIN UP TO DATE ON THE
LATEST WEATHER FORECASTS OVER THE COMING DAYS.
