Flood Outlook Issued
January 30, 2012, 5:28 PM
While the snow hasn't been too bad, we still need to think about spring flooding and the National Weather Service is already doing that by issuing a flood outlook.
The highest possibility for flooding in northeast KELOLAND is a 41 percent chance along the Big Sioux River in Watertown, followed by a 40 percent chance along the Turtle Creek in Redfield.
In southeast KELOLAND, the highest risk is 35 percent along the James River in Mitchell, followed by 30 percent in Huron and Forestburg. There's a 30 percent chance for the Big Sioux In Brookings, Hawarden and Akron.
While the probability is low for spring flooding, the amounts of moisture we get over the next several months will be monitored closely as the wettest time of year is still ahead and we know how fast things can change.
