WINTER/SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK 
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEW YORK NY 
940 AM EDT THU APR 13 2017

...SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK...

THIS IS THE SEVENTH SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK IN A SERIES OF 
ROUTINE SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL STATEMENTS INTENDED TO PROVIDE 
INSIGHT INTO THE LIKELIHOOD OF RIVER FLOODING (NOT FLASH 
FLOODING)OVER THE LOWER HUDSON RIVER VALLEY...NORTHEASTERN NEW 
JERSEY...SOUTHERN CONNECTICUT...NEW YORK CITY AND LONG ISLAND.

THIS OUTLOOK IS BASED ON A CURRENT ASSESSMENT OF HYDRO-
METEOROLOGICAL FACTORS WHICH CONTRIBUTE TO RIVER FLOODING. THESE 
FACTORS INCLUDE RECENT PRECIPITATION...SOIL MOISTURE...SNOW COVER 
AND SNOW WATER EQUIVALENT...RIVER ICE...STREAM-FLOW...FUTURE WEATHER 
CONDITIONS...AND OTHERS. THIS OUTLOOK DOES NOT ADDRESS THE SEVERITY 
OF ANY FUTURE RIVER FLOODING.

THE LATEST CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER 6 TO 10 DAY OUTLOOK VALID FROM 
APRIL 18TH THROUGH THE 22ND SUGGESTS BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND 
ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION ACROSS THE HYDROLOGIC SERVICE AREA. THE 8 
TO 14 DAY OUTLOOK VALID FROM APRIL 20TH THROUGH THE 26TH SUGGESTS 
BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION ACROSS THE 
HYDROLOGIC SERVICE AREA.

HEAVY RAINFALL IS THE PRIMARY FACTOR WHICH LEADS TO RIVER FLOODING. 
IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT HEAVY RAINFALL CAN RAPIDLY CAUSE RIVER 
FLOODING ANY TIME OF THE YEAR...EVEN WHEN OVERALL RIVER FLOOD 
POTENTIAL IS CONSIDERED LOW OR BELOW NORMAL.

CURRENT FLOODING - NONE.

PRECIPITATION - YEAR TO DATE...PRECIPITATION DEPARTURES HAVE BEEN 
NEAR SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL ACROSS THE LOWER HUDSON RIVER 
VALLEY...NORTHEAST NEW JERSEY AND THE NEW YORK CITY 5 BOROUGHS. 
PRECIPITATION DEPARTURES ACROSS SOUTHERN CONNECTICUT AND LONG ISLAND 
HAVE BEEN TWO TO FOUR INCHES BELOW NORMAL.

SNOW DEPTH AND WATER EQUIVALENT - THERE IS CURRENTLY NO SNOW ACROSS 
THE HYDROLOGIC SERVICE AREA.

RIVER FLOWS - ACROSS THE LOCAL HYDROLOGIC SERVICE AREA...FLOWS 
ACROSS AREA RIVERS AND STREAMS ARE NEAR NORMAL TO BELOW NORMAL. REAL-
TIME WATER DATA CAN BE FOUND BY VISITING THE USGS AT 
WWW.USGS.GOV/WATER.

SOIL MOISTURE - BELOW NORMAL. SOIL MOISTURE AND DROUGHT RELATED DATA 
AND CHARTS CAN BE SEEN AT: WWW.CPC.NCEP.NOAA.GOV AND WWW.DROUGHT.GOV.

RESERVOIR CONDITIONS - RESERVOIR LEVELS ACROSS THE NEW YORK CITY 
WATER SUPPLY SYSTEM WERE 3 PERCENT ABOVE NORMAL. RESERVOIR LEVELS 
ACROSS THE COMBINED 13 NORTHEAST NEW JERSEY RESERVOIRS ARE 5 PERCENT 
ABOVE NORMAL.

FUTURE WEATHER CONDITIONS - DURING THE TWO WEEKS OF THIS OUTLOOK 
PERIOD EXPECT BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND ABOVE NORMAL 
PRECIPITATION.

THE NEXT SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK WILL BE ISSUED ON THURSDAY 
APRIL 27TH, 2017.
