Delek Energy Atchafalaya River Outlook

Highlight: River levels to improve SHARPLY! Fig. 1: Current flood stage and 2-week outlook at Krotz Srings on the Atchafalaya River. Discussion: River level forecast for Sep. 1 along the Atchafalaya is up to 5.5 feet from near 3 feet with forecasts issued about one week ago (Fig. 1). The rising river-level forecast is due to an evolving wet weather pattern indicated in the NOAA/WPC 7-day rainfall forecast (Fig. 2). The rising river level trend is likely to continue as the rainfall forecast centered on or just south of the Red River is in the 4-8 in. range according to NOAA/WPC.
