   ...River Levels Elevating due to Runoff and Ice Jams...

.Snowmelt water and rainfall from this past Monday will flow through
streams, rivers, and tributaries through this week. The abnormally
warm weather has been steadily melting snow over the past several
days. This in combination with up to three quarters of an inch of
rainfall from Monday will result in modest rises on the Mississippi
River. Water levels have risen to minor flood stage at Fort Ripley
due to ice jamming downstream and fluctuations in stage of 1 to 2
feet are possible until ice breaks up and moves out. People with
interests near area streams and rivers are encouraged to monitor
the latest forecast.
