U.S. flooding to worsen.
Fig. 1-2: Historic flooding is occurring in parts of ongoing flood zones marked in red in the central Great Plains and Midwest major river areas.
Great Plains discussion: “Historic” flooding is occurring in the Midwest U.S. now. The flooding will worsen. Still present snow cover contains excessive water across the northern Great Plains/Upper Midwest. The outlooks are trending warmer and now warmer than normal through the medium-range therefore accelerating snowmelt and attendant stream flows. The GFS ENS is trending wetter in the medium-range so now we will need to add precipitation into the mix accelerating the flood conditions.
