HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SHREVEPORT LA
201 PM CST THU MAR 5 2015

...SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK FOR NORTHWEST LOUISIANA...SOUTH
ARKANSAS...NORTHEAST TEXAS...AND EXTREME SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA...


INTRODUCTION...

THIS IS THE 2015 SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK ISSUED BY THE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN SHREVEPORT LOUISIANA FOR NORTHEAST
TEXAS...SOUTHWEST ARKANSAS...NORTH LOUISIANA...AND EXTREME SOUTHEAST
OKLAHOMA.  THIS ISSUANCE OUTLINES CURRENT RIVER AND SOIL MOISTURE
CONDITIONS AND HIGHLIGHTS POTENTIAL SITUATIONS THAT WOULD INDUCE
FLOODING OR EXACERBATE DROUGHT.


ANTECEDENT CONDITIONS...

THE AUTUMN OF 2014 OBSERVED SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL TO NEAR NORMAL
RAINFALL TOTALS.  DURING THE METEOROLOGICAL WINTER OF 2014 AND 2015
(DECEMBER 1 THROUGH FEBRUARY 28)...AREA OBSERVERS CONTINUED TO
REPORT NEAR NORMAL PRECIPITATION.  ON THE OTHER HAND...THIS WINTER
REPORTED SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND HELD
EVAPOTRANSPIRATION LOSSES LOWER THAN USUAL.

DURING THE LAST HALF OF FEBRUARY THROUGH THE FIRST WEEK OF
MARCH...REPEATED ARCTIC AIR INCURSIONS AS WELL AS AN ACTIVE STORM
TRACK DEVELOPING IN THE SOUTHERN BRANCH OF THE POLAR JETSTREAM
RESULTED IN PLENTIFUL PRECIPITATION.  THIRTY DAY PRECIPITATION
TOTALS FROM EARLY FEBRUARY THROUGH THIS ISSUANCE TODAY RANGED FROM
NEAR THREE INCHES ACROSS LOWER TOLEDO BEND COUNTRY IN DEEP EAST
TEXAS TO UPWARDS OF NINE INCHES ACROSS PORTIONS OF NORTHEAST TEXAS
AND ADJACENT SOUTHWEST ARKANSAS.

AS A RESULT OF THE WET AND QUITE COOL WEATHER OF THE PAST THREE
WEEKS...AREA BAYOUS...RIVERS...AND LAKES CONTINUE TO RISE SLOWLY BUT
STEADILY WITH THIS TREND TO CONTINUE THROUGH THE SECOND WEEK OF
MARCH.


METEOROLOGICAL OUTLOOK...

METEOROLOGICAL SPRINGTIME FROM MARCH 1 THROUGH MAY 31 IS NORMALLY
OUR WETTEST TIME OF THE YEAR WITH MAY AS THE WETTEST MONTH THAT
NORMALLY TALLIES FIVE TO SIX INCHES OF RAINFALL.

THE LATEST OUTLOOKS FROM THE CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER SHOW EQUAL
CHANCES FOR A WETTER VERSUS DRIER SPRINGTIME.  IN THE SHORT
TERM...BY MID MARCH NEAR MARCH 15TH...SEVERAL OF THE FORECAST MODELS
DEVELOP A DEEP LONGWAVE TROUGH IN THE SOUTHWESTERN UNITED STATES.
THIS PATTERN IS ALMOST ALWAYS FAVORABLE FOR PLENTIFUL...IF NOT HEAVY
RAINFALL AND NEEDS TO BE WATCHED CAREFULLY DURING THE NEXT SEVERAL
DAYS.



RIVER BASIN HYDROLOGIC STATUS...

...AVERAGE FLOOD POTENTIAL AREA WIDE THIS SPRING ACROSS EAST
TEXAS...SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA...NORTHERN LOUISIANA...AND SOUTHERN
ARKANSAS...


...RED RIVER AND TRIBUTARIES...

TYPICAL SEASONAL AND MINOR FLOODING REMAINS ONGOING ON THE SULPHUR
RIVER IN NORTHEAST TEXAS AND ON BAYOU DORCHEAT IN NORTHWEST
LOUISIANA.  MINOR FLOODING JUST RECENTLY ALSO DEVELOPED ON PORTIONS
OF THE CYPRESS BASIN OF THE RED RIVER IN EAST TEXAS THAT INCLUDES
THE BLACK CYPRESS BAYOU.  FINALLY...TYPICAL SEASONAL AND MINOR HIGH
WATER CONDITIONS WILL DEVELOP ON BAYOU BODCAU AND RED CHUTE BAYOU IN
NORTHWEST LOUISIANA THROUGH MID MONTH.

AREA RESERVOIRS IN THE RED RIVER BASIN ACROSS DEEP EAST TEXAS
CONTINUE TO BENEFIT FROM THE TIMELY AND BOUNTIFUL RAINFALL OF THE
PAST SEVERAL WEEKS.  LAKES BOB SANDLIN AND PAT MAYSE ROSE TO ABOVE
CONSERVATION POOL STAGE FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE BEFORE THE GREAT
DROUGHT OF 2011.  JIM CHAPMAN LAKE IN NORTHEAST TEXAS SHOULD
CONTINUE TO SLOWLY REBOUND TO NEAR CONSERVATION POOL STAGE THROUGH
MID MONTH.  ONLY LAKE TEXOMA ON THE MAIN STEM OF THE RED RIVER
REMAINS BELOW CONSERVATION POOL STAGE BUT AT LEAST HAS GAINED A FEW
FEET DURING THE PAST SEVERAL MONTHS AS IT ALSO CONTINUES TO SLOWLY
RECOVER FROM THE DROUGHT OF 2011.

ANTECEDENT SOIL MOISTURE DURING THE PAST THREE WEEKS ROSE TO ABOVE
NORMAL FOR EARLY SPRING TIME.  OF COURSE...THE THREE WINTER
PRECIPITATION EVENTS HAS RECHARGED SUBSOIL MOISTURE AS WELL DURING
THE PAST FEW WEEKS AS THIS FROZEN PRECIPITATION MELTED RATHER SLOWLY
FOR THIS REGION OF THE UNITED STATES AND INFILTRATED THE SOIL
EFFECTIVELY.

THE FLOOD POTENTIAL FOR THE RED RIVER BASIN HAS RISEN TO NEAR
AVERAGE THIS SPRING.


...OUACHITA RIVER AND TRIBUTARIES...

THE SOUTHERN HALF OF ARKANSAS ALSO SHARED IN THE BOUNTIFUL RAINFALL
AND SNOWFALL DURING THE LAST THREE WEEKS.  SOUTH ARKANSAS AND
NORTHEAST LOUISIANA TALLIED FOUR TO UPWARDS OF NINE INCHES OF
PRECIPITATION DURING THE PAST THIRTY DAYS.  ALSO A RESULT...THE
TYPICAL SPRINGTIME RISE WILL CONTINUE TO DEVELOP ON THE OUACHITA
RIVER THROUGH MID MARCH.  THE SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL FOR THE
OUACHITA RIVER AND ITS TRIBUTARIES HAS RISEN TO AVERAGE POTENTIAL.


...SABINE RIVER AND TRIBUTARIES...

EAST TEXAS AND ADJACENT WESTERN LOUISIANA TALLIED FOUR TO EIGHT
INCHES OF PRECIPITATION DURING THE PAST THIRTY DAYS.  AS A
RESULT...STAGES AND DISCHARGES SLOWLY BUT STEADILY ROSE ON THE
SABINE RIVER AND ITS TRIBUTARIES.  ALSO LAKE FORK AND LAKE TAWAKONI
CONTINUE TO SLOWLY AND STEADILY RISE TO NEAR THEIR RESPECTIVE
CONSERVATION POOL STAGE AFTER RECEDING GREATLY FROM THE DROUGHT OF
2011.  THE SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL FOR THE SABINE RIVER AND ITS
TRIBUTARIES HAS RISEN TO AVERAGE POTENTIAL.


...NECHES AND ANGELINA RIVERS AND TRIBUTARIES...

THE NECHES AND ANGELINA RIVER BASINS ALSO SHARED IN THE BOUNTIFUL
RAINFALL OF THE PAST THREE MONTHS TALLYING EIGHT TO SIXTEEN INCHES.
THE ANTECEDENT SOIL MOISTURE CONDITIONS ACROSS DEEP EAST TEXAS
REMAIN NEAR NORMAL WITH STREAMFLOWS AND STAGES NEAR NORMAL FOR EARLY
SPRINGTIME.  THE FLOOD POTENTIAL IN THE NECHES AND ANGELINA RIVER
BASINS REMAINS NEAR AVERAGE THIS SPRING.

HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LAKE CHARLES LA
1238 PM CST THU MAR 5 2015

...SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK FOR SOUTHEAST TEXAS...SOUTHWEST
AND CENTRAL LOUISIANA...

INTRODUCTION...

THIS IS THE 2015 SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK ISSUED BY THE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN LAKE CHARLES LOUISIANA. THIS ISSUANCE
OUTLINES CURRENT RIVER AND SOIL MOISTURE CONDITIONS AND HIGHLIGHTS
POTENTIAL SITUATIONS THAT COULD INDUCE FLOODING.

ANTECEDENT CONDITIONS...
DURING THE PAST TWO MONTHS...SOUTHEAST TEXAS AND SOUTHWEST AND
CENTRAL LOUISIANA HAVE EXPERIENCED GENERALLY BELOW NORMAL TO TO NEAR
NORMAL PRECIPITATION ACROSS THE AREA...WITH THE DRIEST CONDITIONS
FOUND ACROSS CENTRAL LOUISIANA. THIS CORRESPONDS TO THE WATER YEAR SO FAR
(SINCE OCTOBER 1 2014) WITH RAIN TOTALS RUNNING BETWEEN 50 AND 90
PERCENT OF NORMAL WITH THE EXCEPTION OF A FEW POCKETS IN SOUTHEAST
TEXAS AND SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA WHERE RAIN AMOUNTS HAVE BEEN NEAR
NORMAL.

ACCORDING TO THE US GEOLOGICAL SURVEY (USGS)...CURRENT 28 DAY
AVERAGE STREAMFLOW CONDITIONS ACROSS THE AREA SHOW BELOW NORMAL
CONDITIONS WITH FLOWS AVERAGING 20 PERCENT OF NORMAL. RECENT
RAINFALLS IN THE PAST WEEK HAVE CREATED A SUBSTANTIAL INCREASE IN
SHORT TERM STREAM FLOWS.

THE LATEST DROUGHT MONITOR INDICATES MODERATE DROUGHT CONDITIONS IN
SOUTH CENTRAL LOUISIANA AND ABNORMALLY DRY ELSEWHERE IN LOUISIANA.


RIVER BASIN HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK...

...NECHES AND SABINE RIVERS AND TRIBUTARIES...

RAINFALL THE PAST TWO MONTHS HAS BEEN NEAR TO SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL
ON THE SABINE AND NECHES BASINS. BASED ON EXISTING SOIL
MOISTURE...STREAMFLOW...AND NORMAL SPRING RAINFALL PATTERNS...THE
POTENTIAL FOR SPRING FLOODING IS NEAR NORMAL AT THIS TIME. IT SHOULD
BE REMEMBERED THAT FLOODING IN THE SABINE AND NECHES BASINS RESULTS
FROM HEAVY RAINFALL OVER A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME AND THESE
OCCURRENCES CAN NOT BE PREDICTED WELL IN ADVANCE.


...CALCASIEU...MERMENTAU AND VERMILION RIVERS AND TRIBUTARIES...

DURING THE PAST TWO WEEKS, PRECIPITATION HAS BEEN NEAR NORMAL OVER
THE CALCASIEU AND MERMENTAU BASINS AND SOIL MOISTURE CONTENT IS
NORMAL. SEASONAL FLOODING IS OCCURRING AND FORECAST. OBSERVED DAILY
STREAMFLOWS AS A PERCENT OF MEAN ARE GIVEN BELOW.

                                              3/4
CALCASIEU RIVER              GLENMORA LA     111%
CALCASIEU RIVER                KINDER LA      97%
MERMENTAU RIVER             MERMENTAU LA     193%

BASED ON EXISTING SOIL MOISTURE...STREAMFLOW...AND NORMAL SPRING
RAINFALL PATTERNS...AN AVERAGE FLOOD POTENTIAL IS EXPECTED ACROSS
THE MERMENTAU AND CALCASIEU BASINS.


...LOWER RED RIVER...

STREAMFLOWS ARE NEAR NORMAL FOR THE RED RIVER BASIN DOWNSTREAM OF
FULTON ARKANSAS. DROUGHT CONDITIONS HAVE BEEN ALLEVIATED FROM ABOVE
NORMAL PRECIPITATION OVER THE PAST TWO WEEKS. UPPER RED BASIN AND
OVERALL SOIL MOISTURE CONTENT IS NORMAL TO SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL.
MINOR FLOODING IS OCCURRING AND EXPECTED IN THE UPPER RED RIVER
BASIN.

BASED ON EXISTING SOIL MOISTURE...STREAMFLOWS...AND NORMAL SPRING
RAINFALL PATTERNS...A AVERAGE FLOOD POTENTIAL IS EXPECTED ACROSS THE
LOWER RED RIVER VALLEY.

...ATCHAFALAYA RIVER...
DURING THE EARLY WINTER, MUCH BELOW NORMAL STREAMFLOW CONDITIONS
HAVE OCCURRED OVER THE LOWER OHIO RIVER WHILE NORMAL TO BELOW NORMAL
STREAMFLOW CONDITIONS OCCURRED IN THE MIDDLE MISSISSIPPI RIVER. OVER
THE PAST TWO WEEKS CONDITIONS HAVE IMPROVED WITH ABOVE NORMAL
PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS WHICH HAS LED TO NORMAL STREAMFLOW CONDITIONS
ON THE MIDDLE MISSISSIPPI RIVER.

DURING THE PAST TWO WEEKS, SEASONAL FLOODING HAS OCCURRED OVER THE
SMALLER TRIBUTARIES OF THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER. NO FLOODING HAS
OCCURRED ON THE LOWER OHIO AND MISSISSIPPI RIVERS THIS SEASON.
CURRENTLY MINOR RISES ARE OCCURRING ON THE LOWER MISSISSIPPI RIVER
APPROACHING VICKSBURG.

AS OF MARCH 4...STREAMFLOW ON THE ATCHAFALAYA RIVER NEAR SIMMESPORT
WAS NEAR 77% OF NORMAL.

BASED ON EXISTING SOIL MOISTURE...STREAMFLOW CONDITIONS...AND NORMAL
SPRING RAINFALL PATTERNS...AN AVERAGE FLOOD POTENTIAL IS EXPECTED
ALONG THE ATCHAFALAYA RIVER. THE MAGNITUDE OF FUTURE CRESTS
WILL DEPEND ON THE AMOUNT AND EXTENT OF ANY UPSTREAM ACCUMULATIONS
OF SNOW COVER AND RESULTANT SNOWMELT...COUPLED WITH THE
FREQUENCY...INTENSITY...AND EXTENT OF SPRING RAINS.


METEOROLOGICAL OUTLOOK...
A SERIES OF DISTURBANCES WILL AFFECT THE AREA OVER THE NEXT 7 TO 10
DAYS...BRINGING OCCASIONAL CHANCES FOR RAIN.  CURRENTLY RAINFALL
AMOUNTS ARE EXPECTED TO AVERAGE BETWEEN 1 AND 3 INCHES ACROSS THE
AREA.

CLIMATOLOGICAL OUTLOOK...

THE 8-14 DAY OUTLOOK ISSUED BY THE NWS CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER
INDICATES HIGHER CHANCES OF ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION FOR SOUTHEAST
TEXAS AND SOUTHWEST AND CENTRAL LOUISIANA. HIGHER CHANCES OF ABOVE
NORMAL TEMPERATURES ARE ALSO EXPECTED FOR THE ENTIRE AREA.

THE 30-DAY OUTLOOK FOR THE MONTH OF MARCH INDICATES GREATER CHANCES
FOR ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION AND BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES FOR THE
AREA...WHILE THE 90-DAY OUTLOOK INDICATES HIGHER CHANCES OF BELOW
NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND EQUAL CHANCES OF ABOVE...BELOW OR NORMAL PRECIPITATION.

...2015 SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK FOR SOUTHEAST
LOUISIANA...SOUTHWEST MISSISSIPPI...AND COASTAL MISSISSIPPI...

...THE POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING IN SPRING 2015 WILL GENERALLY BE
AVERAGE...

INTRODUCTION...

THIS IS THE SPRING FLOOD OUTLOOK ISSUED BY THE NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE FORECAST OFFICE AT NEW ORLEANS/BATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA FOR
SOUTHEAST LOUISIANA, SOUTHWEST MISSISSIPPI, AND COASTAL MISSISSIPPI.
THIS PRODUCT IS INTENDED TO OUTLINE CURRENT RIVER AND SOIL MOISTURE
CONDITIONS AND TO HIGHLIGHT POTENTIAL SITUATIONS THAT WOULD INDUCE
FLOODING OR EXACERBATE DROUGHT.

ANTECEDENT CONDITIONS...

PRECIPITATION - OVER THE PAST TWO MONTHS...NORMAL TO BELOW NORMAL
PRECIPITATION HAS OCCURRED OVER THE UPPER AND LOWER MISSISSIPPI
RIVER VALLEYS.

TEMPERATURES - COLDER TEMPERATURES PRODUCED FROZEN PRECIPITATION FOR
SEVERAL OF THIS WINTER`S PRECIPITATION EVENTS OVER PARTS OF THE
LOWER MISSISSIPPI RIVER VALLEY. OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS, TEMPERATURES
WILL GRADUALLY WARM BEFORE DROPPING TO AROUND FREEZING AGAIN IN
MID-MARCH FOR SEVERAL AREAS.

SNOW WATER EQUIVALENT (SWE) - SNOW WATER EQUIVALENT RANGES FROM 0.5
TO 4 INCHES WITH LOCALLY HEAVIER AMOUNTS. ACROSS THE OHIO RIVER
VALLEY SNOW DEPTH RANGES FROM 0.5 TO 20 INCHES WITH HEAVIEST AMOUNTS
IN KENTUCKY.

SNOW DEPTH - SIGNIFICANT SNOW DEPTH IS CURRENTLY CONFINED TO THE
UPPER MISSISSIPPI VALLEY AND THE OHIO RIVER VALLEY. ACROSS THE UPPER
MISSISSIPPI VALLEY SNOW DEPTH RANGES FROM 2 TO 20 INCHES WITH SOME
HEAVIER AMOUNTS.

SNOW WATER EQUIVALENT - AMOUNTS RANGE FROM 0.5 TO 4 INCHES WITH
LOCALLY HEAVIER AMOUNTS.

LIGHT AMOUNTS OF RAIN, SLEET, FREEZING RAIN AND SNOW OCCURRED
RECENTLY OVER PARTS OF THE LOWER MISSISSIPPI RIVER VALLEY. ISOLATED
SNOW COVER REMAINS OVER ARKANSAS, KENTUCKY AND TENNESSEE. THIS SNOW
SHOULD MELT AND SHOULD NOT IMPACT THE FLOOD POTENTIAL FOR THE
MISSISSIPPI AND ATCHAFALAYA RIVERS.

SOIL MOISTURE CONTENTS - SOIL MOISTURE CONDITIONS CONTINUE TO BE
NEAR NORMAL TO BELOW NORMAL OVER THE OHIO RIVER VALLEY AND THE LOWER
MISSISSIPPI RIVER VALLEY.

FLOODING - MINOR FLOODING IS OCCURRING ON THE TANGIPAHOA RIVER IN
LOUISIANA AND ALONG THE LOWER PEARL RIVER.


EXTENDED TEMPERATURE AND PRECIPITATION OUTLOOK...

THE 8-14 DAY OUTLOOK ISSUED BY THE NWS CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER
INDICATES EQUAL CHANCES OF NORMAL PRECIPITATION FOR THE MAJORITY OF
THE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY WITH HIGHER CHANCES OF ABOVE NORMAL
PRECIPITATION OVER THE LOWER MISSISSIPPI VALLEY. HIGHER CHANCES OF
ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED FOR THE ENTIRE AREA.

THE 30-DAY OUTLOOK INDICATES EQUAL CHANCES OF NORMAL PRECIPITATION
FOR THE OHIO AND UPPER MISSISSIPPI VALLEYS AND HIGHER CHANCES OF
ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION FOR THE TENNESSEE AND LOWER MISSISSIPPI
VALLEYS. THE TEMPERATURE OUTLOOK INDICATES HIGHER CHANCES OF BELOW
NORMAL TEMPERATURES OVER THE UPPER MISSISSIPPI AND OHIO VALLEYS.

THE 90-DAY OUTLOOK INDICATES EQUAL CHANCES OF NORMAL PRECIPITATION
ACROSS THE ENTIRE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY. EQUAL CHANCES OF NORMAL
TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED OVER THE UPPER MISSISSIPPI AND OHIO RIVER
VALLEYS WITH HIGHER CHANCES OF BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES OVER THE
LOWER MISSISSIPPI VALLEY.


MISSISSIPPI RIVER AND ATCHAFALAYA RIVER BASINS...

DURING THE EARLY WINTER...MUCH BELOW NORMAL STREAMFLOW CONDITIONS
OCCURRED OVER THE LOWER OHIO RIVER...WHILE NORMAL TO BELOW NORMAL
STREAMFLOW CONDITIONS OCCURRED IN THE MIDDLE MISSISSIPPI RIVER. OVER
THE PAST TWO WEEKS...CONDITIONS IMPROVED AS A RESULT OF ABOVE NORMAL
PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS.  STREAMFLOW CONDITONS ON THE MIDDLE
MISSISSIPPI RIVER ARE CURRENTLY AT NORMAL LEVELS.

DURING THE PAST TWO WEEKS, SEASONAL FLOODING HAS OCCURRED OVER THE
SMALLER TRIBUTARIES OF THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER. NO FLOODING HAS
OCCURRED ON THE LOWER OHIO AND MISSISSIPPI RIVERS THIS SEASON.
CURRENTLY...MINOR RISES ARE OCCURRING ON THE LOWER MISSISSIPPI RIVER
APPROACHING VICKSBURG.

SEE THE CHART BELOW FOR SPECIFIC LOCATIONS SHOWING PERCENT OF NORMAL
STREAMFLOWS:

                                             3/4

ATCHAFALAYA RIVER          SIMMESPORT LA     77%


PEARL RIVER BASIN IN SOUTHEAST LOUISIANA AND COASTAL MISSISSIPPI...

OVER THE PAST TWO WEEKS HEAVY PRECIPITATION CAUSED FLOODING ACROSS
THE UPPER PEARL RIVER BASIN. ELEVATED LEVELS HAVE RECEDED OVER THE
UPPER PEARL RIVER AND WILL CONTINUE TO RECEDE TO BELOW NORMAL LEVELS.

THE LOWER PEARL BASIN IS STILL EXPERIENCING RISES FROM UPSTREAM.
MINOR FLOODING IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS.
OVERALL SOIL MOISTURE CONTENT IS NEAR NORMAL.

OBSERVED DAILY STREAMFLOWS AS A PERCENT OF MEAN ARE GIVEN BELOW.

                                              3/4

AMITE/COMITE/NORTHSHORE DRAINAGE BASINS...

DURING THE WINTER, DROUGHT CONDITIONS DEVELOPED ACROSS SOUTHERN
LOUISIANA. HEAVY RAINFALL OVER THE LAST FEW DAYS PRODUCED MINOR
FLOODING ACROSS THE RIVER BASINS IN SOUTHEAST LOUISIANA.

STREAMFLOWS ARE CURRENTLY RUNNING ABOVE NORMAL AND SOIL MOISTURE
CONTENT IS NORMAL TO ABOVE NORMAL. MINOR FLOODING IS OCCURRING AND
IS EXPECTED DURING THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS.

OBSERVED DAILY STREAMFLOWS AS A PERCENT OF MEAN ARE GIVEN BELOW.

PASCAGOULA BASIN IN SOUTH MISSISSIPPI...

BELOW NORMAL PRECIPITATION OVER WINTER HAS LED TO DROUGHT CONDITIONS
DEVELOPING ACROSS SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI AND SOUTHERN ALABAMA.

STREAMFLOWS AND SOIL MOISTURE CONTENT REMAIN NEAR SEASONAL LEVELS
OVER THE PASCAGOULA BASIN. NO FLOODING IS OCCURRING OR EXPECTED
DURING THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS.

OBSERVED DAILY STREAMFLOWS AS A PERCENT OF MEAN ARE GIVEN BELOW.

                                              3/4

2015 SPRING FLOOD OUTLOOK...

BASED ON EXISTING SOIL MOISTURE...STREAMFLOW CONDITIONS...AND NORMAL
SPRING RAINFALL PATTERNS...THE POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING IS AVERAGE
ACROSS SOUTHEASTERN LOUISIANA, SOUTHWESTERN MISSISSIPPI, AND COASTAL
MISSISSIPPI.

AN AVERAGE FLOOD POTENTIAL IS EXPECTED ALONG THE LOWER MISSISSIPPI
AND ATCHAFALAYA RIVERS. THE MAGNITUDE OF FUTURE CRESTS WILL DEPEND
ON THE AMOUNT AND EXTENT OF ANY UPSTREAM ACCUMULATIONS OF SNOW COVER
AND RESULTANT SNOWMELT; COUPLED WITH THE FREQUENCY...INTENSITY...AND
EXTENT OF SPRING RAINS.

AN AVERAGE FLOOD POTENTIAL IS EXPECTED ACROSS THE PEARL RIVER BASIN
DOWNSTREAM OF JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI TO THE GULF COAST.

AN AVERAGE FLOOD POTENTIAL IS EXPECTED ACROSS THE AMITE RIVER...
COMITE RIVER...AND OTHER NORTHSHORE RIVER BASINS.

AN AVERAGE FLOOD POTENTIAL IS EXPECTED ACROSS THE PASCAGOULA RIVER
BASIN.

STREAMFLOW DATA PROVIDED BY THE U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY AND THE U.S.
ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS.

THIS WILL BE THE LAST SCHEDULED SPRING FLOOD OUTLOOK FOR 2015.
