5-Day River Flood Outlook

The product identifies areas where there is a potential for significant river flooding over the next 5 days. It is intended to provide a general outlook for significant river flooding.  It is not intended to depict all small-scale events such as localized flooding and/or flash flooding. 

River Flood Outlook's covering the MidSouth can be found at the Southeast River Forecast Center's website and the Lower Mississippi River Forecast Center's website.  The River Flood Outlook is intended to alert emergency managers and others that a potential for river flooding exists.  Official flood forecasts will continue to be issued by weather forecast offices.
