Soggy Fields Due to Snowmelt and Rain - Severe Storms Too
Soggy fields and extensive inundation due to snow melt, river flooding, and heavy rain can be expected over parts of the central U.S. over the next week. The first system (1) produced heavy snow and blizzard conditions over the Upper Midwest, especially South Dakota.
This snow will rapidly melt over the next week resulting in extensive ponding of water, inundation of fields, and flooding of tributaries leading into the Missouri and Upper Mississippi Rivers. A new flood crest is likely along the Missouri River due to melting snow next week.
Keep alert for severe storms tomorrow over the South Central U.S. where a significant severe storm outbreak is expected.
