Mississippi River flooding


On weather channel it was just discussed how up north there is so much water trapped in the snowpack that if a sudden warm snap hits, record flooding would occur. May be another year of spillway openings!

I was surprised at the amount of debris and foam after they opened Bonnet Carre last time. Never would have thunk it

re: Mississippi River flooding


So,what's the weather channel going to do? Start naming River floods like they're doing snow storms now?

re: Mississippi River flooding


Ive noticed that usually the 28 day forecast always says the river will fall about the 7th day no matter what the river is actually doing.

re: Mississippi River flooding


I have noticed that as well. I have also noticed that if the whole 28 day duration is agreeing with its self that it normally will at least go in that direction.

I have spent most of my life trying to predict the river and I have become just a smidget better than flipping a coin.

re: Mississippi River flooding


I'm in IA/IL right now and there ain't no snow up here. They're still way behind on precipt from last year. Maybe the western mtns are what they're talking about but even at that the river in Memphis is extremely low right now.

re: Mississippi River flooding


Becareful of the 28 day forecast. Its intent is for the pilots/captains to know the lowest it will get and not the highest.(so they'll know if they have enough water to get up north) Stick with the five day forecast. Know that it takes about 14 days for the water in cairo to get to new orleans.
