...MAJOR RIVER FLOODING WILL CONTINUE ACROSS PARTS OF THE  
MISSISSIPPI AND MISSOURI RIVER BASINS...  
   
..QUIET WEATHER FOR MUCH OF THE CONUS THIS WEEKEND
 
 
MODERATE TO MAJOR AND HISTORIC RIVER FLOODING IS EXPECTED TO  
CONTINUE ACROSS PARTS OF THE MISSISSIPPI AND MISSOURI RIVER BASINS  
THROUGH THE WEEKEND AS A RESULT OF HEAVY RAINFALL EARLIER THIS  
WEEK FALLING ON FROZEN GROUND AND A DEEP SNOW PACK LEADING TO  
INTENSE AND QUICK MELTING. FLOOD WARNINGS AND ADVISORIES REMAIN IN  
EFFECT, MAINLY ACROSS PARTS OF THE EASTERN NEBRASKA, IOWA, AND  
SOUTHERN WISCONSIN. SENSIBLE WEATHER WISE, DAILY CHANCES FOR  
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE LIKELY ACROSS FLORIDA NEAR A  
LINGERING FRONTAL BOUNDARY, WHILE LAKE EFFECT SNOW SHOWERS WITH  
MAINLY LIGHT ACCUMULATIONS ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE GREAT LAKES.  
ELSEWHERE, THE WEATHER SHOULD BE RATHER QUIET AS SURFACE HIGH  
PRESSURE DOMINATES THE FORECAST. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE WEST  
COAST, TEMPERATURES ACROSS MUCH OF THE COUNTRY LOOK TO BE NEAR OR  
BELOW NORMAL WITH THE GREATEST DEPARTURES EXPECTED ACROSS THE  
SOUTHERN PLAINS WHERE AFTERNOON HIGHS COULD BE 15 TO 25 DEGREES  
BELOW NORMAL.
