Hydrologic Outlook


301 PM CDT Wed May 22 2019

...More Widespread Rain Likely Later Thursday Night and Friday...
Could Bring More Rises on Area Rivers and Streams....

Another round of showers and thunderstorms is expected to spread
across the area mainly later Thursday night and Friday. Rainfall
totals during this period are looking to be 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch
for many locations. With a very moist airmass expected over the
area, any thunderstorms will be efficient rain makers and local
rainfall totals of an inch or more are possible.

After the recent rains of Saturday night and Sunday and again
Tuesday night, most soils are wet or saturated. The rain expected
Thursday night and Friday is likely to cause more runoff and
additional rises on area rivers and streams late in the week and
into the weekend. Additional flooding is possible if
thunderstorms repeat over the same areas.

Those living near or with interests along waterways should keep a
close eye on water levels Friday and through the holiday weekend.
Be prepared to take action if flooding develops.
