Nws Says Risk Of Mississippi Flooding Above Normal

LA CROSSE, WI (Ben Caxton) — Forecasters with the National Weather Service say the risk of Mississippi River flooding this spring “well-above normal”. That’s the word from an outlook released this week by the National Weather Service office in La Crosse. According to the report, wet weather, above-normal soil moisture and higher-than-normal river levels all could contribute to major flooding in the region with current snow depths in northern Minnesota and Wisconsin ranging from 18 inches to 2 feet. The risk of major flooding is estimated at 83% at McGregor, 52% at Guttenberg, and 91% at Dubuque compared to a typical year’s odds of around 5% to 9%
