Potential Flooding This Spring

January 21, 2011, 6:05 PM by Scot Mundt

Potential Flooding This Spring
Eastern North Dakota is already concerned about flooding in the spring, and there's a good reason to be.  The amount of snow to our north has already toppled four and a half feet in Fargo.  The flood outlook for the spring says there's a twenty percent chance the river at Fargo will beat the record crest set in 2009.

While the snow so far this year in northeast KELOLAND is not as much as North Dakota, we still have the northeast coming in at just more than three feet.

And all that snow contains water.  In fact, looking at the current water equivalent of the snow on the ground shows there can be as much as 4 to 6 inches of water in the snow in northeast KELOLAND. 2 to 4 inches of water in the snow in the southeast. 

The current snow pack is holding about the same amount of water as last year. But southeast KELOLAND is not. Last year there was as much as 4 to 6 inches of water in the snow pack. 

The National Weather Service will have a flood outlook by spring.  A slow melt would be fantastic, but the way this winter is going, that might be hard to come by.
