HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NASHVILLE TN
349 PM CST THU MAR 5 2015

...THE SPRING FLOOD OUTLOOK FOR 2015 IS ABOVE AVERAGE IN THE
SHORT-TERM AND AVERAGE FOR THE REST OF THE SPRING...

FOR THE SPRING OF 2015...THERE IS AN AVERAGE TO ABOVE AVERAGE RISK
FOR FLOODING ACROSS MIDDLE TENNESSEE. RECENT PRECIPITATION HAS
NEARLY SATURATED THE SOIL MOISTURE...AND STREAM FLOWS REMAIN
ELEVATED. THIS HAS INCREASED THE OVER-ALL FLOOD RISK IN THE
SHORT-TERM TO ABOVE AVERAGE. FURTHERMORE...LINGERING SNOW AND ICE
FROM RECENT WINTER WEATHER EVENTS MAY LEAD TO ADDITIONAL RISES ON
AREA CREEKS AND STREAMS SHOULD A RAPID MELT OCCUR.

...EXISTING CONDITIONS...

SOIL MOISTURE REMAINS NEARLY SATURATED DUE TO THE RECENT RAINFALL
ACROSS THE AREA. ONCE SPRING GREEN UP OCCURS...VEGETATION WILL BEGIN
TO USE THIS MOISTURE...AND MORE RAINFALL WILL BE NEEDED BEFORE SOIL
SATURATION OCCURS. THEREFORE...ONCE PLANTS AND TREES ARE NO LONGER
DORMANT OUR FLOOD RISK BECOMES AVERAGE.

WINTER TEMPERATURES HAVE BEEN WELL BELOW NORMAL...WITH FEBRUARY
RECORDING AVERAGE TEMPERATURES AS COLD AS 10 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL.
THIS UNUSUAL COLD SPELL LED TO A FEW FROZEN GROUND ISSUES...BUT A
RECENT MODERATION OF TEMPERATURES AND A RISING SUN ANGLE HAS
ALLEVIATED CONCERNS.

PRECIPITATION FOR THE WINTER WAS BELOW NORMAL FOR MOST AREAS...BUT A
RECENT SHIFT TO A WET PATTERN HAS MADE UP THE DIFFERENCES AND MOST
LOCATIONS ARE NEAR NORMAL...ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE NORTHWESTERN
PORTIONS OF THE MID-STATE.

...METEOROLOGICAL OUTLOOK...

THE CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER FORECASTS INDICATE THERE IS A SLIGHTLY
HIGHER PROBABILITY OF WETTER THAN NORMAL CONDITIONS...WITH EQUAL
CHANCES OF ABOVE...BELOW...OR NORMAL TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE
MID-STATE FOR THE MONTH OF MARCH.

FOR THE SPRING MONTHS OF MARCH-APRIL-MAY...THE CLIMATE PREDICTION
CENTER FORECASTS INDICATE THERE ARE EQUAL CHANCES OF
ABOVE...BELOW...OR NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND PRECIPITATION ACROSS
MIDDLE TENNESSEE.

...2015 SPRING FLOOD OUTLOOK...

THE OVERALL SPRING FLOOD OUTLOOK IS ABOVE AVERAGE IN THE SHORT-TERM
DUE TO RECENT RAINFALL AND LINGERING ICE AND SNOW IN SOME LOCATIONS.
ONCE THE WINTER LIKE PATTERN BREAKS AND SPRING GREEN UP
OCCURS...EXPECT AN AVERAGE RISK OF FLOODING FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE
SPRING.

HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MORRISTOWN TN
100 PM EST THU MAR 5 2015 /1200 PM CST THU MAR 5 2015/

...SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK FOR EAST TENNESSEE...SOUTHWEST
VIRGINIA...AND EXTREME SOUTHWEST NORTH CAROLINA...

INTRODUCTION...

THIS IS THE 2015 SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK ISSUED BY THE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN MORRISTOWN TENNESSEE FOR EAST
TENNESSEE...SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA...AND EXTREME SOUTHWESTERN NORTH
CAROLINA. THIS ISSUANCE OUTLINES CURRENT RIVER AND SOIL MOISTURE
CONDITIONS AND HIGHLIGHTS POTENTIAL SITUATIONS THAT WOULD INDUCE
FLOODING OR EXACERBATE DROUGHT.

IN SUMMARY...THE 2015 SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL IS AVERAGE.

THE FOLLOWING SECTIONS DESCRIBE PAST AND CURRENT CONDITIONS AND
FUTURE EXPECTATIONS.


SNOW PACK...

VERY LITTLE SNOW PACK REMAINED FROM THE WINTER STORMS OF FEBRUARY.
HOWEVER...WINTER WEATHER IS OCCURRING TODAY...AND WILL PRODUCE A
FRESH SNOW COVER OVER THE CUMBERLAND PLATEAU AND ADJACENT CUMBERLAND
MOUNTAINS OF TENNESSEE AND SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA. THIS SNOW PACK COULD
RANGE FROM 1 TO 4 INCHES OF FRESH SNOW...WITH LIQUID EQUIVALENTS
MOSTLY LESS THAN A HALF INCH. THERE IS LITTLE TO NO SNOW PACK OVER
THE APPALACHIANS...BUT TODAYS WINTER WEATHER SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO
PRODUCE MAYBE 1 INCH OF NEW SNOW THERE WITH WATER EQUIVALENTS ONLY
AROUND A TENTH OF AN INCH. BRIEF LIGHT ACCUMULATIONS OF SLEET AND
SNOW ARE POSSIBLE TODAY IN THE VALLEY. MOST OF TODAYS SNOW
ACCUMULATIONS WILL BE GONE BY THE END OF THE WEEK.


PRECIPITATION...

OVER THE PAST 30 DAYS...PRECIPITATION RANGED FROM 125 TO 150 PERCENT
OF NORMAL ACROSS THE NORTHERN PLATEAU AND THE ADJACENT CUMBERLAND
MOUNTAINS. BUT PRECIPITATION WAS ONLY 50 TO 75 PERCENT OF NORMAL IN
THE MOUNTAINS OF EAST TENNESSEE AND SOUTHWEST NORTH CAROLINA.
PRECIPITATION IN THE TENNESSEE VALLEY WAS NEAR NORMAL FROM WATTS BAR
LAKE NORTHEASTWARD...BUT WAS ONLY 50 TO 75 PERCENT OF NORMAL IN
AREAS TO THE SOUTHWEST INCLUDING CHATTANOOGA.

OVER THE PAST 60 DAYS...NEAR NORMAL PRECIPITATION HAS OCCURRED OVER
THE NORTHERN PLATEAU AND THE ADJACENT CUMBERLAND MOUNTAINS. BUT
PRECIPITATION WAS ONLY 50 TO 75 PERCENT OF NORMAL IN THE MOUNTAINS
OF EAST TENNESSEE AND SOUTHWEST NORTH CAROLINA. PRECIPITATION IN THE
TENNESSEE VALLEY WAS 75 TO 90 PERCENT OF NORMAL FROM WATTS BAR LAKE
NORTHEASTWARD...BUT ONLY 50 TO 75 PERCENT OF NORMAL TO THE SOUTHWEST
INCLUDING CHATTANOOGA.


TEMPERATURES...

AFTER A MILD DECEMBER THAT RAN 2 TO 3 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL...
JANUARY WAS 1 TO 2 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL. BUT FEBRUARY WAS VERY
COLD...AVERAGING 8 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL. OVERALL...OUR TEMPERATURES
FOR THE PAST 90 DAYS HAVE AVERAGED ABOUT 2 TO 3 DEGREES BELOW
NORMAL.


DROUGHT...

AREAS OF D0...D ZERO...OR OF ABNORMALLY DRY STATUS...WERE NOTED FROM
RUSSELL AND WASHINGTON COUNTIES IN VIRGINIA...DOWN THE SPINE OF THE
APPALACHIANS MAINLY IN NORTH CAROLINA...AND INTO PORTIONS OF
MARION...HAMILTON...BRADLEY...AND POLK COUNTIES OF TENNESSEE.


SOIL MOISTURE...

OVERALL SOIL MOISTURE CONDITIONS ARE NEAR NORMAL ACROSS THE AREA.
HOWEVER...RECENT SNOW MELT AND RAIN HAS THE NEAR SURFACE SOILS VERY
MOIST...ESPECIALLY OVER THE NORTHERN PLATEAU AND ACROSS SOUTHWEST
VIRGINIA.


STREAMFLOWS...

WINTRY PRECIPITATION EVENTS IN FEBRUARY PRODUCED A SIGNIFICANT
SNOWPACK ACROSS SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA. THE ONSET OF WARMER
TEMPERATURES EARLIER THIS WEEK COMBINED WITH RAINFALL OVER THE PAST
48 HOURS TO PRODUCE WIDESPREAD SNOW MELT DRIVEN FLOODING ACROSS
SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA...AND INTO THE POWELL AND CLINCH BASINS OF
NORTHERN TENNESSEE...AND ACROSS THE CUMBERLAND PLATEAU OF TENNESSEE.
THIS FLOODING IS THE FIRST RIVER FLOODING OF NOTE OVER THE PAST
SEVERAL MONTHS. THEREFORE THERE ARE ELEVATED STREAMFLOWS ON THE
HOLSTON...CLINCH...POWELL...AND EMORY RIVERS. STREAMFLOWS ON THESE
RIVERS ARE CURRENTLY MUCH ABOVE NORMAL.

SPECIFICALLY...IN THE HEADWATER AREAS IN VIRGINIA...THE UPPER CLINCH
AND UPPER HOLSTON BASIN STREAMFLOWS ARE MUCH ABOVE NORMAL. THE LOWER
CLINCH AND POWELL BASIN STREAMFLOWS OF TENNESSEE ARE CURRENTLY MUCH
ABOVE NORMAL. FOR THE RIVERS WHOSE HEADWATER AREAS ARE IN WESTERN
NORTH CAROLINA...THE FRENCH BROAD...UPPER PIGEON... LITTLE TENNESSEE
AND HIWASSEE RIVERS...STREAMFLOWS ARE NEAR NORMAL.

THE ELEVATED STREAMFLOWS ARE NOT UNUSUAL FOLLOWING A NOTABLE
PRECIPITATION AND SNOW MELT EVENT...AND THOSE RIVERS WILL EXPERIENCE
FALLS TOWARD NORMAL STREAMFLOWS THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.

STREAMFLOWS AS A PERCENT OF DAILY NORMAL ARE GIVEN FOR RIVER POINTS
IN...OR IMMEDIATELY UPSTREAM FROM...OUR HYDROLOGIC SERVICE AREA.

RIVER...                        LOCATION...    3/4/15
N FORK HOLSTON RIVER           SALTVILLE VA     766%
MID FORK HOLSTON RIVER   SEVEN MILE FORD VA     746%
CLINCH RIVER                   CLEVELAND VA     872%
CLINCH RIVER                    TAZEWELL TN     546%
POWELL RIVER                      ARTHUR TN     584%

FRENCH BROAD RIVER             ASHEVILLE NC      81%


TENNESSEE RIVER BASIN RESERVOIR LEVELS...

THE PERCENT OF AVAILABLE FLOOD CONTROL STORAGE FOR RESERVOIRS IN THE
TENNESSEE BASIN ABOVE CHATTANOOGA IS 99 PERCENT.


METEOROLOGICAL OUTLOOK...

THE WEEK TWO OUTLOOK FOR DAYS 8 TO 14 SHOWS GOOD PROBABILITIES FOR
WARMER AND WETTER THAN NORMAL CONDITIONS.

THE CLIMATE OUTLOOK FOR THE MONTH OF MARCH SHOWS NO DISCERNIBLE
TRENDS FOR THE TEMPERATURE FORECAST...BUT A SLIGHTLY ELEVATED CHANCE
FOR ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION.

THE LONGER TERM CLIMATE OUTLOOK FOR THE 3 MONTH PERIOD OF MARCH
THROUGH MAY INDICATES NO DISCERNIBLE TREND FOR THE TEMPERATURE AND
PRECIPITATION FORECAST...OR TO PUT IT ANOTHER WAY...THERE ARE EQUAL
CHANCES THAT THINGS COULD TURN OUT ABOVE...NEAR...OR BELOW NORMAL.


THE 2015 SPRING FLOOD OUTLOOK...

BASED ON ALL OF THE ABOVE CONSIDERATIONS...AN AVERAGE FLOOD POTENTIAL
IS EXPECTED FOR THE EAST TENNESSEE...SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA...AND
EXTREME SOUTHWEST NORTH CAROLINA BASINS.

...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.

...NEAR NORMAL SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL FOR CENTRAL ALABAMA...


HISTORICALLY FOR CENTRAL ALABAMA...THE RIVER FLOOD SEASON BEGINS
IN EARLY TO MID JANUARY...WITH THE NUMBER OF RIVER FLOOD EVENTS
INCREASING THROUGH LATE WINTER WITH A PEAK IN EARLY TO MID
MARCH...ENDING IN LATE APRIL.

FOR CENTRAL ALABAMA...CURRENT STREAMFLOWS ARE RUNNING SLIGHTLY BELOW
TO NEAR NORMAL ACROSS CENTRAL ALABAMA. MEDIUM AND LONG RANGE
PRECIPITATION GUIDANCE HINTS AT CONTINUED WET WEATHER THROUGH APRIL.
THEREFORE THE EXPECTATION IS FOR THE NUMBER OF RIVER FLOODS AND THE
MAGNITUDE OF THOSE RIVER FLOODS TO BE CLOSE TO TYPICAL THROUGH
APRIL.  THIS IS SUPPORTED BY LONG TERM ENSEMBLE STREAMFLOW
FORECASTS.  THESE ENSEMBLE STREAMFLOW FORECASTS CAN BE FOUND ON THE
WATER.WEATHER.GOV WEB SITE UNDER THE EXPERIMENTAL LONG RANGE RIVER
FLOOD RISK TAB.

CURRENT STREAMFLOWS...THE 14-DAY AVERAGE STREAMFLOWS PROVIDED BY THE
USGS AS OF MARCH 3RD ARE RUNNING NEAR NORMAL ACROSS CENTRAL ALABAMA.

PAST PRECIPITATION...PRECIPITATION OVER THE LAST 30 DAYS...BASED ON
SERFC MULTISENSOR PRECIPITATION ESTIMATES...HAS BEEN NEAR NORMAL
ACROSS CENTRAL ALABAMA. RAINFALL SO FAR THIS YEAR IS AVERAGING
BETWEEN SEVEN AND TWELVE INCHES ACROSS CENTRAL ALABAMA...WITH
LOCALLY GREATER AMOUNTS.

RESERVOIRS...MOST RESERVOIRS REMAIN NEAR THEIR TARGET POOLS FOR THIS
TIME OF YEAR.

FUTURE PRECIPITATION...THE LATEST MEDIUM RANGE METEOROLOGICAL MODELS
INDICATE A CONTINUED WET WEATHER PATTERN.  THE LATEST CLIMATE
PREDICTION CENTER (CPC) 8 TO 14 DAY OUTLOOK IS INDICATING ABOVE
NORMAL PRECIPITATION THROUGH MID MARCH.

AS FAR AS LONGER TERM PRECIPITATION OUTLOOKS...BASED ON THE CPC LONG
LEAD OUTLOOK...ENSO IS EXPECTED TO HAVE LITTLE IMPACT. THE LATEST
CPC 3-MONTH OUTLOOK INDICATES ABOVE NORMAL CHANCES OF PRECIPITATION
ACROSS CENTRAL ALABAMA...PRIMARILY BASED ON CLIMATE MODELS RATHER
THAN ENSO.  SEE THE CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER WEB SITE FOR MORE
DETAILS.

WWW.CPC.NCEP.NOAA.GOV

THE SOUTHEAST RIVER FORECAST CENTER (SERFC) ISSUES A VARIETY OF
PRODUCTS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR TO UPDATE THE OUTLOOK FOR WATER
RESOURCES.  THE SERFC WATER RESOURCES OUTLOOK IS UPDATED EVERY TWO
TO THREE WEEKS.
