PROBABILISTIC HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HASTINGS NE  
217 PM CST THU FEB 27 2020  
   
..SPRING FLOOD AND WATER RESOURCES OUTLOOK NUMBER 2
 
 
THIS OUTLOOK IS FOR THE HASTINGS HYDROLOGIC SERVICE AREA (HSA). IN  
SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA THIS OUTLOOK INCLUDES THE  
PLATTE...LOUP...LITTLE BLUE...AND REPUBLICAN RIVERS AND THEIR  
TRIBUTARIES. IN NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS...THE SOLOMON RIVER AND ITS  
TRIBUTARIES ARE INCLUDED.  
 
...THE POTENTIAL FOR SPRING FLOODING IS NEAR-TO-ABOVE AVERAGE ACROSS  
THE MAJORITY OF THE AREA...  
 
THE OVERALL RISK FOR FLOODING THIS SPRING CAN BE CHARACTERIZED AS  
NEAR-TO-ABOVE NORMAL. THE PRIMARY REASON FOR THIS INCREASED THREAT  
IS DUE TO HIGH RIVER LEVELS, LEFT OVER FROM 2019, AND GENERALLY  
ELEVATED SOIL MOISTURE ACROSS THE REGION. IN ADDITION, THE LONG  
RANGE CLIMATE OUTLOOK VALID FROM MARCH THROUGH MAY IS CALLING FOR A  
HIGHER LIKELIHOOD OF ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION. AT THE SAME TIME,  
SEVERAL TYPICAL INDICATORS FOR FLOOD RISK ARE BELOW-NORMAL THIS  
YEAR. AS OF FEB 27TH, THERE IS LITTLE TO NO SNOW COVER ACROSS  
NEBRASKA OR KANSAS AND MOST RIVERS HAVE LOST THEIR ICE, LEADING TO A  
LOW, TO NEAR ZERO, ICE JAM THREAT. THERE IS ALSO VERY LITTLE FROST  
LEFT IN THE GROUND AND THE GROUND IS LIKELY TO COMPLETELY THAW PRIOR  
TO OUR AREA SEEING HEAVY RAINFALL.  
 
COMPARED TO THIS TIME LAST YEAR, CONDITIONS ARE MUCH DIFFERENT IN  
SEVERAL WAYS. THE PRIMARY DIFFERENCES ARE THE LACK OF SIGNIFICANT  
RIVER ICE, LACK OF SNOWPACK, MUCH SHALLOWER FROST DEPTHS AND THE  
FACT THAT EARLY MARCH IS FORECAST TO BEGIN WITH ABOVE NORMAL  
TEMPERATURES.  
 
FUTURE FLOODING POTENTIAL WILL BE HIGHLY DEPENDENT ON THE LOCATION  
AND INTENSITY OF POSSIBLE PRECIPITATION, ESPECIALLY HEAVY RAIN, OVER  
THE COMING WEEKS.

THE NEXT (AND FINAL) SPRING FLOOD OUTLOOK WILL BE ISSUED IN TWO  
WEEKS: THURSDAY, MARCH 12.  
 
...CLIMATOLOGICAL REVIEW (WINTER 2019-20 AND RECENT PRECIPITATION  
TRENDS)...  
 
IN THE PREVIOUS ISSUANCE OF THIS STATEMENT BACK ON FEB. 13, THIS  
SECTION INCLUDED A PRECIPITATION RECAP FOR THE PREVIOUS YEAR 2019  
ACROSS THE 30-COUNTY NWS HASTINGS COVERAGE AREA (24 COUNTIES IN  
CENTRAL/SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND 6 IN NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS).  
PLEASE REFER BACK TO THAT STATEMENT FOR ANNUAL 2019 PRECIPITATION  
INFORMATION.  
 
FROM THIS POINT FORWARD, THE FOCUS WILL BE ON MORE RECENT  
PRECIPITATION TRENDS OVER THE PAST THREE MONTHS, SPECIFICALLY WHAT  
HAS TRANSPIRED DURING "METEOROLOGICAL WINTER" 2019-20, WHICH WILL  
OFFICIALLY END ON FEB. 29 (METEOROLOGICAL WINTER CONSISTS OF THE  
THREE FULL CALENDAR MONTHS OF DEC-JAN-FEB).  
 
AS EVIDENCED IN THE DATA PRESENTED IN THE TABLE BELOW (AND SUPPORTED  
BY NWS AHPS PRECIPITATION ANALYSIS), THIS WINTER HAS FEATURED  
SOLIDLY ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION, WITH MOST OF OUR 30-COUNTY AREA  
RANGING BETWEEN 110 AND 200 PERCENT OF NORMAL. INTERESTINGLY THOUGH,  
THIS WINTER WILL ACTUALLY END UP BEING NOTICEABLY DRIER THAN LAST  
WINTER (2018-19), DURING WHICH MOST OF OUR LOCAL AREA AVERAGED AN  
INCREDIBLE 200-300 PERCENT OF NORMAL.  
 
WINTER DROUGHT TRENDS:  
ACCORDING TO WEEKLY UPDATES BY THE U.S. DROUGHT MONITOR, THE VAST  
MAJORITY OF OUR 30-COUNTY AREA HAS REMAINED SOLIDLY DROUGHT-FREE THE  
ENTIRE WINTER, GIVEN THE SOLIDLY WETTER-THAN-NORMAL CONDITIONS. THE  
ONLY EXCEPTION HAD BEEN WITHIN FURNAS COUNTY, WHERE AN AREA OF  
ABNORMALLY DRY (CATEGORY D0) CONDITIONS EXISTED THROUGH DECEMBER  
BEFORE BEING REMOVED IN JANUARY. KEEPING THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE  
THOUGH, KEEP IN MIND THAT NO MATTER HOW MUCH PRECIPITATION FALLS  
DURING THE WINTER, IT USUALLY ONLY ACCOUNTS FOR A SMALL PERCENTAGE  
OF TOTAL ANNUAL PRECIPITATION.  
 
THE NEXT TABLE BELOW HIGHLIGHTS PRECIPITATION TOTALS AND DEPARTURES  
FROM NORMAL/PERCENT OF NORMAL FOR METEOROLOGICAL WINTER THUS FAR,  
COVERING DEC. 1 - FEB. 26. DATA IS SHOWN FOR JUST A SMALL SAMPLING  
OF OFFICIAL NWS COOPERATIVE OBSERVERS, ALONG WITH A FEW PRIMARY  
AIRPORT SITES.

...WEATHER/CLIMATOLOGICAL OUTLOOK FOR THE NEXT WEEK THROUGH THE NEXT  
THREE MONTHS...  
 
IT'S NOW TIME TO SWITCH GEARS AND LOOK AHEAD TO EXPECTED WEATHER  
CONDITIONS OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS AND EXPECTED CLIMATE TRENDS  
OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS:  
 
STARTING WITH THE MOST IMMEDIATE LOCAL WEATHER EXPECTATIONS DURING  
THE NEXT WEEK (THROUGH MARCH 4): ACCORDING TO THE LATEST NWS  
HASTINGS 7-DAY FORECAST, THE NEXT WEEK LOOKS TO BE MOSTLY DRY,  
ALTHOUGH THERE ARE SOME SMALL CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION MAINLY  
CENTERED DURING THE MON-WED (MARCH 2-4) TIME FRAME. BARRING SOME  
DECENT CHANGES IN LATER COMPUTER MODEL FORECASTS, WIDESPREAD HEAVY  
PRECIPITATION IS NOT ANTICIPATED. TEMPERATURE-WISE, READINGS THROUGH  
THE NEXT WEEK LOOK TO AVERAGE ABOVE NORMAL AS A WHOLE, WITH HIGHS  
RANGING FROM AS COOL AS THE 40S TO AS WARM AS THE 60S.  
 
LOOKING OUT JUST A BIT FARTHER IN TIME, THE LATEST 8-14 DAY OUTLOOK  
FROM THE CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER (VALID MARCH 5-11) FAVORS ABOVE  
NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND BELOW NORMAL PRECIPITATION.  
 
MARCH OUTLOOK (ONE-MONTH): THE LATEST ONE-MONTH OUTLOOK FROM THE  
CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER (CPC) ISSUED ON FEB. 20 SLIGHTLY FAVORS  
BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES FOR THE MONTH AS A WHOLE. PRECIPITATION-  
WISE, MOST OF OUR AREA FALLS INTO THE "EQUAL CHANCES" CATEGORY. THIS  
"EQUAL CHANCES" FORECAST MEANS THERE IS NO CLEAR SIGNAL IN CURRENT  
LONGER-TERM FORECASTS TO SUPPORT ONE OUTCOME OVER ANOTHER (ABOVE  
NORMAL, NEAR NORMAL, BELOW NORMAL). AS A POINT OF REFERENCE, NORMAL  
MARCH PRECIPITATION ACROSS THE LOCAL AREA RANGES FROM AROUND 1.40"  
IN THE WESTERN-MOST COUNTIES (SUCH AS DAWSON/FURNAS), UP TO AROUND  
2.10" IN FAR EASTERN COUNTIES ALONG AND NEAR HIGHWAY 81 (SUCH AS  
YORK/THAYER). TEMPERATURE-WISE, LONG-TERM 30-YEAR NORMALS (BASED ON  
1981-2010 DATA) INDICATE THAT MARCH HIGH TEMPERATURES ACROSS SOUTH  
CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS GRADUALLY CLIMB FROM  
AVERAGES IN THE MID-40S/NEAR-50 EARLY IN THE MONTH TO THE UPPER  
50S/LOW 60S BY MONTH'S END. AVERAGE DAILY LOW TEMPERATURES GRADUALLY  
INCREASE FROM AROUND 20 TO AROUND 30 DEGREES.  
 
TURNING TO THE UPCOMING METEOROLOGICAL SPRING MONTHS OF MARCH-APRIL-  
MAY AS A WHOLE, THE LATEST CPC THREE-MONTH OUTLOOK VALID FOR MARCH-  
MAY (ISSUED FEB. 20) DEPICTS NO TRULY STRONG SIGNALS REGARDING  
TEMPERATURE AND PRECIPITATION TRENDS. THAT BEING SAID, OUR ENTIRE  
AREA IS CURRENTLY ASSIGNED "EQUAL CHANCES" OF SEEING ABOVE, BELOW OR  
NEAR NORMAL TEMPERATURES, AND VERY SLIGHTLY FAVORS ABOVE NORMAL  
PRECIPITATION. THE "EQUAL CHANCES" FORECAST MEANS THERE IS NO CLEAR  
SIGNAL IN CURRENT LONGER-TERM FORECASTS TO SUPPORT ONE OUTCOME OVER  
ANOTHER (ABOVE NORMAL, NEAR NORMAL, BELOW NORMAL. ALTHOUGH THERE ARE  
NO TRULY STRONG SIGNALS REGARDING UPCOMING SPRING PRECIPITATION  
TRENDS, ONE CAN KEEP IN MIND THAT 30-YEAR NORMAL PRECIPITATION FROM  
MARCH-MAY ACROSS THE NWS HASTINGS COVERAGE AREA TYPICALLY RANGES  
FROM 7-10 INCHES, WITH THE LOWEST AMOUNTS GENERALLY WEST OF HIGHWAY  
183 AND HIGHEST AMOUNTS NEAR THE HIGHWAY 81 CORRIDOR.  
 
U.S. SEASONAL DROUGHT OUTLOOK (ISSUED BY CPC ON FEB. 20 AND VALID  
THROUGH THE END OF MAY): THIS OUTLOOK INDICATES NO STRONG POTENTIAL  
FOR DROUGHT DEVELOPMENT WITHIN SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA/NORTH CENTRAL  
KANSAS THIS SPRING.  
 
(THE LONGER RANGE FORECASTS ISSUED BY CPC AND REFERENCED IN THE  
PRECEDING PARAGRAPHS ARE BASED ON OUTPUT FROM VARIOUS FORECAST  
MODELS, AS WELL AS FORECASTER EXPERTISE, AND TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION  
ONGOING GLOBAL/TROPICAL ATMOSPHERIC AND OCEANIC STATES, RECENT  
TRENDS IN OBSERVED DATA, SOIL MOISTURE CONDITIONS, ETC. MORE  
INFORMATION ABOUT THESE LONGER-RANGE FORECASTS CAN BE OBTAINED FROM
