HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MELBOURNE FL
315 PM EST THU MAR 2 2017

...SPRING FLOOD OUTLOOK FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA RIVERS...

RAINFALL WAS BELOW NORMAL ACROSS MUCH OF EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA FOR
THE METEOROLOGICAL WINTER SEASON OF DECEMBER, JANUARY AND FEBRUARY.
THE LATEST STREAMFLOW INFORMATION FROM THE UNITED STATES GEOLOGICAL
SURVEY (USGS) INDICATES THAT STREAMFLOWS ARE RUNNING BELOW NORMAL
TO NEAR NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR IN EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

THE LATEST THREE MONTH OUTLOOK FROM THE CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER
FOR THE PERIOD MARCH...APRIL AND MAY INDICATES EQUAL CHANCES FOR
BELOW NORMAL...NORMAL OR ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION. HOWEVER...
EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA IS IN THE DRY SEASON THIS TIME OF YEAR AND
APRIL IS CLIMATOLOGICALLY THE DRIEST MONTH OF THE YEAR. THE TYPICAL
RIVER FLOOD SEASON FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA IS DURING THE LATE
SUMMER AND EARLY AUTUMN.

GIVEN THE LOW WINTER PRECIPITATION TOTALS, THE POTENTIAL FOR SPRING
RIVER FLOODING IN EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA IS LOWER THAN NORMAL FOR
THIS SPRING SEASON.
