WINTER/SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILMINGTON OH  
436 PM EDT THU MAR 21 2019  
   
..NEAR NORMAL FLOOD RISK THROUGH APRIL 4
 
 
NORMAL FLOOD POTENTIAL MEANS AT LEAST SOME FLOODING IS POSSIBLE.  
ABOVE NORMAL FLOOD POTENTIAL MEANS MORE WIDESPREAD FLOODING IS  
POSSIBLE WITH SOME POINTS POSSIBLY REACHING MODERATE OR MAJOR  
FLOOD LEVELS.  
 
THIS IS A BIWEEKLY FLOOD OUTLOOK ISSUED BY LOCAL NWS OFFICES IN  
WINTER AND EARLY SPRING TO SUMMARIZE BASIN CONDITIONS AND TO  
ASSESS THE POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING. THE OUTLOOKS ARE BASED ON  
CURRENT AND FORECAST HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL CONDITIONS.  
 
THE FACTORS CONSIDERED WHEN DETERMINING FLOOD POTENTIAL INCLUDE  
CURRENT STREAMFLOW AND RESERVOIR LEVELS COMPARED TO NORMAL FOR  
THE PERIOD, WATER EQUIVALENT IN ANY SNOW PACK, SOIL MOISTURE  
AND EXPECTED PRECIPITATION.  
   
..SNOW COVER AND SNOW WATER EQUIVALENT
 
 
THERE IS NO SNOW WITHIN THE BASIN.  
   
..STREAMFLOW
 
 
STREAMFLOW IS NEAR NORMAL ACROSS THE REGION.  
   
..ICE
 
 
THERE IS NO ICE ON RIVERS WITHIN THE BASIN.  
   
..SOIL MOISTURE
 
 
SOILS MOISTURE REMAINS WELL ABOVE NORMAL OVER THE AREA. SOILS  
WILL BE VERY RESPONSIVE TO RUNOFF WITH ANY ADDITIONAL RAINFALL.  
   
..RESERVOIR CAPACITY
 
 
RESERVOIRS ARE NEAR OPTIMUM WINTER FLOOD CONTROL LEVELS.  
   
..WEATHER TRENDS AND PRECIPITATION
 
 
LOW PRESSURE WILL BRING RAIN TO THE REGION LATE ON THE 25TH INTO  
THE 26TH. WHILE THIS RAINFALL MAY RESULT IN RISES ON AREA RIVERS,  
FLOODING IS NOT LIKELY.  
 
DURING THE SECOND WEEK OF THE OUTLOOK PERIOD, PRECIPITATION IS  
FORECAST TO BE ABOVE NORMAL. FLOOD POTENTIAL REMAINS NEAR NORMAL  
FOR THIS WEEK OF THE OUTLOOK, MEANING WIDESPREAD FLOODING IS NOT  
EXPECTED, THOUGH MINOR FLOODING AT A FORECAST POINT OR TWO IS  
POSSIBLE.
