Rising River Stages Across The Area

The combination of rainfall and melting snow has led to increasing river stages in numerous streams. Some streams are approaching or have reached bankfull or flood stage. Many streams will continue to rise as precipitation falls and snow melts. See our Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service website to find the latest Hydrologic Outlooks/Statements and Flood Warnings.

Also, be prepared for minor flooding in low lying areas, and locations where there are blocked sewers or drainage ditches. Localized street flooding is also occurring. Use caution when driving.
