Mississippi River flooding
(Posted on 4/3/13 at 9:53 am)
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'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.

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.
