HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSONVILLE FL
200 PM EST THU MAR 5 2015

...SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK FOR SOUTHEAST GEORGIA AND
NORTHEAST FLORIDA...

...ABOVE NORMAL POTENTIAL FOR RIVER FLOODING THIS SPRING...

...EXISTING CONDITIONS...

IN THE ALTAMAHA...SATILLA AND ALAPAHA BASINS...

RAINFALL SINCE OCTOBER 1ST 2014 ACROSS INLAND SOUTHEAST GEORGIA HAS
BEEN ABOVE NORMAL WITH RAINFALL SURPLUSES OF 2 TO 6 INCHES AND THIS
HAS LED TO MULTIPLE MINOR FLOOD EVENTS ALREADY THIS PAST WINTER.
STREAM FLOWS REMAIN WELL ABOVE NORMAL AND MINOR FLOODING IS ALREADY
ONGOING DURING THE FIRST WEEK OF MARCH.

IN THE UPPER SUWANNEE AND ST. MARYS BASINS...

RAINFALL OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS HAS BEEN GENERALLY ABOVE NORMAL
WITH RAINFALL SURPLUSES OF 2 TO 6 INCHES...MAINLY LOCATED IN THE
HEADWATERS OF THESE BASINS OVER THE OKEFENOKEE SWAMP. THIS HAS LED
TO ABOVE NORMAL STREAM FLOWS FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR AND NEAR BANKFULL
CONDITIONS DURING SEVERAL OCCASIONS THIS PAST WINTER.

IN THE SANTA FE BASIN...

RAINFALL OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS HAS GENERALLY BEEN BELOW NORMAL
WITH RAINFALL DEFICITS UP TO 2 TO 4 INCHES BELOW NORMAL AND THIS HAS
KEPT CURRENT STREAM FLOWS NEAR NORMAL AFTER A LONG PERIOD OF WET
CONDITIONS DURING THE FIRST HALF OF 2014. ANY SIGNIFICANT FLOODING
WILL LIKELY DEPEND ON HOW HIGH THE SUWANNEE BASIN WOULD GET TO
CREATE BACKWATER PROBLEMS IN THE LOWER PORTIONS OF THE SANTA FE
BASIN.

IN THE BLACK CREEK BASIN...

RAINFALL OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS HAS GENERALLY BEEN NORMAL TO BELOW
NORMAL WITH RAINFALL DEFICITS UP TO 2 TO 4 INCHES BELOW NORMAL AND
THIS HAS KEPT CURRENT STREAM FLOWS NEAR NORMAL AFTER A LONG PERIOD
OF WET CONDITIONS DURING THE FIRST HALF OF 2014.

...LONG TERM PRECIPITATION OUTLOOK...

THE ONE MONTH PRECIPITATION OUTLOOK FOR MARCH INDICATES A GREATER
THAN 40 PERCENT CHANCE OF ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION. THIS IS
SUPPORTED BY NUMERICAL MODEL FORECASTS WHICH SUGGESTS THE MORE
ENERGETIC PATTERN EXPERIENCED IN LATE FEBRUARY WILL CONTINUE INTO
MUCH OF THE MONTH OF MARCH. THE LONGER RANGE PRECIPITATION OUTLOOK
FEATURES NEAR NORMAL PRECIPITATION FOR THE MONTHS OF APRIL AND MAY.
THE POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY RAINFALL TYPICALLY DECREASES AFTER EARLY
APRIL AS THE REGION TRANSITIONS INTO MORE OF A DRIER PATTERN AS
INFLUENCES FROM FRONTAL SYSTEMS DIMINISH.

...SPRING FLOOD OUTLOOK SUMMARY...

TAKING INTO ACCOUNT LONG TERM ENSEMBLE PROBABILITIES FOR
PRECIPITATION...RECENT RAINFALL AND CURRENT STREAM FLOWS...THERE IS
AN ABOVE NORMAL POTENTIAL FOR RIVER FLOODING ACROSS THE REGION THIS
SPRING. THIS RISK IS MAXIMIZED ACROSS SOUTHEAST GEORGIA AND INLAND
NORTH FLORIDA...WHICH INCLUDES THE ALTAMAHA...SATILLA...ALAPAHA...
ST. MARYS AND UPPER SUWANNEE BASINS. IN THESE SPECIFIC
BASINS...THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR A HIGH IMPACT BASIN-WIDE FLOOD EVENT
THIS SPRING SHOULD HEAVIER THAN NORMAL RAINFALL OCCUR...AS STORAGE
CAPACITY IN THE HEADWATER PORTION OF THESE BASINS IS ESPECIALLY LOW.

SHOULD NORMAL TO ABOVE NORMAL SPRING RAINFALL AMOUNTS MATERIALIZE
THE CONTINUED WET CONDITIONS WILL KEEP AN INCREASED FLOOD RISK FOR
OUR AREA RIVERS MOVING INTO HURRICANE SEASON IN JUNE.

HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PEACHTREE CITY GA
945 AM EST THU MAR 5 2015

...SPRING FLOOD OUTLOOK FOR NORTH AND CENTRAL GEORGIA...

FOR THE SPRING OF 2015...THE SOUTHEAST RIVER FORECAST CENTER IS
PREDICTING A NEAR NORMAL RIVER FLOOD POTENTIAL FOR NORTH AND CENTRAL
GEORGIA. GIVEN THAT SPRING IS CHARACTERISTICALLY AN ACTIVE PERIOD
FOR RIVER FLOODING...THIS OUTLOOK INDICATES THAT NORTH AND CENTRAL
GEORGIA CAN EXPECT TO SEE A NEARLY-TYPICAL NUMBER OF RIVER FLOODS
WITH A SIMILAR FLOOD MAGNITUDE.

...EXISTING CONDITIONS...

SOIL MOISTURE...UPPER AND LOWER SOIL MOISTURE CONDITIONS HAVE
BECOME ABNORMALLY MOIST IN NORTH GEORGIA TO WET IN CENTRAL GEORGIA
DUE TO RECENT WEATHER SYSTEMS PRODUCING PRECIPITATION. AVERAGE DAILY
STREAM FLOWS FOR THE PAST 30 DAYS HAVE BEEN RUNNING NEAR NORMAL
ACROSS NORTH AND CENTRAL GEORGIA.

CLIMATE REGIME...A NEAR NORMAL WEATHER PATTERN HAS PERSISTED THROUGH
THE WINTER MONTHS AND IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE INTO THE SPRING. THIS
PATTERN HAS CONTRIBUTED TO STORM TRACKS THAT HAVE BROUGHT
PRECIPITATION TO NORTH AND CENTRAL GEORGIA ABOUT EVERY 3
TO 5 DAYS. THE MORE SIGNIFICANT RAINFALL AMOUNTS HAVE BEEN ABOUT
EVERY TWO WEEKS.

RAINFALL...DURING THE PAST 90 DAYS...ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION HAS
OCCURRED OVER PORTIONS OF CENTRAL GEORGIA. THESE AREAS WERE GENERALLY
100 TO 125 PERCENT OF NORMAL WITH RAINFALL TOTALS OF 13 TO 17
INCHES. BELOW NORMAL PRECIPITATION OCCURRED OVER NORTH GEORGIA IN
DECEMBER AND THE SECOND HALF OF JANUARY...BUT WAS ABOVE NORMAL IN
THE FIRST HALF OF JANUARY AND MOST OF FEBRUARY. AS A RESULT...
WIDESPREAD MINOR FLOODING OCCURRED A FEW TIMES ACROSS NORTH AND
CENTRAL GEORGIA IN JANUARY...AND ISOLATED MINOR FLOODING OCCURRED
OVER PORTIONS OF CENTRAL GEORGIA IN FEBRUARY.

RESERVOIR CONSIDERATIONS...OVERALL POOL LEVELS OF THE MAJOR
RESERVOIRS IN NORTH AND CENTRAL GEORGIA ARE NEAR OR ABOVE TARGET
LEVELS FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR...WITH A FEW ALREADY APPROACHING SUMMER
POOL LEVELS. NORMAL RAINFALL SHOULD ALLOW RESERVOIRS TO BE FILLED TO
SUMMER POOL CRITERIA.

METEOROLOGICAL OUTLOOK...THE SOUTHEAST U.S. MOVES INTO A MORE
TRANSITIONAL ENVIRONMENT IN THE SPRING WITH INCREASING CHANCES OF
HEAVY RAIN. THE CURRENT FORECAST FOR MARCH THROUGH MAY IS FOR EQUAL
CHANCES OF ABOVE OR BELOW NORMAL RAINFALL OVER NORTH GEORGIA AND
ABOVE NORMAL FOR CENTRAL GEORGIA. A NEUTRAL ENSO PATTERN IS EXPECTED
TO PERSIST THROUGH THE SPRING...DEVELOPING INTO EL NINO THIS SUMMER.

...SPRING FLOOD OUTLOOK...
CONSIDERING THE RAINFALL EXPECTED FOR THE NEXT 90 DAYS AND THE
PRE-EXISTING MOIST TO WET SOIL CONDITIONS...THE OUTLOOK IS FOR A
NEAR NORMAL CHANCE OF FLOODING THIS SPRING IN NORTH AND CENTRAL
GEORGIA.
