Spring Flood Outlook

Below Normal temperatures are expected for the remainder of February with not significant storm systemto add snowfall to the snowpack.  Latest long term forecast trends suggests near normal temperatures and precipitation this spring.

This flood outlook is for the NWS Green Bay service area. It covers the time period from March through May 2015.

This includes the following rivers: Yellow River, Menominee River, Wolf River, Little Wolf River, Waupaca River, and Oconto River.
The risk of minor flooding remains slightly above normal due to the persistence of a widespread deep snowpack. The delayed runoff of the snow pack may combine with spring rain runoff to potentially increase the risk of flooding. Due to the forecast of below normal temperatures through March, ice break up for the area rivers will likely be delayed deeper into March and more than likely into April  for northern rivers and streams.
