Should we think about Spring Flooding?

The Mississippi River remains a couple feet higher than normal indicating water still is draining through the tributary systems. And with all this snow.......spring flooding gonna be a problem?

 

Mike Welvaert, hydrologist with the National Weather Service in La Crosse says near-record snowfalls on top of waterlogged soils combined with rivers and streams still draining heavy autumn rains mean a higher-than-normal chance of spring flooding in the Coulee Region, especially between La Crosse and Eau Claire.

He says with rivers and streams not being able to rid themselves of all the water we had 2 months ago, expect some higher levels of flooding.
