...Summer Flood Outlook for East Central Florida...

The potential for summer flooding in east central Florida is near to
above normal through July. Much drier than normal conditions during
January and March across central Florida were offset by increases in
rainfall in February and April. This has led to overall near to
slightly below normal rainfall so far for the year across the
region. The latest streamflow information from the United States
Geological Survey (USGS) indicates that streamflows are running
normal to above normal for this time of year, with many in the area
reporting above the 75th percentile for late April.

The latest three month outlook from the Climate Prediction Center
indicates a 40 to 50% chance of above normal precipitation for the
months of May, June and July. The climatological wet season for
central Florida typically begins mid to late May, and lasts into
October. This outlook encompasses the first three months of the wet
season.
