SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEW YORK NY
834 AM EDT THU APR 17 2014

...SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK...NUMBER 8...

THIS IS THE EIGHT SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK IN A SERIES OF
ROUTINE WINTER/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 22ND THROUGH APRIL 26TH SUGGESTS ABOVE NORMAL
TEMPERATURES WITH NORMAL PRECIPITATION ACROSS THE HYDROLOGIC
SERVICE AREA. THE 8 TO 14 DAY OUTLOOK FROM APRIL 24TH THROUGH
APRIL 30TH SUGGESTS ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND NORMAL TO ABOVE
NORMAL PRECIPITATION.

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 - IN THE LAST 30 DAYS...PRECIPITATION DEPARTURES
ACROSS NORTHEAST NEW JERSEY AND THE LOWER HUDSON RIVER VALLEY HAS
BEEN 1 TO 2 INCHES ABOVE NORMAL. PRECIPITATION DEPARTURES ACROSS
NEW YORK CITY...LONG ISLAND AND CONNECTICUT HAS BEEN 1 TO 6
INCHES ABOVE NORMAL...ESPECIALLY ACROSS SOUTHEASTERN CONNECTICUT.

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

SNOW - CURRENTLY THERE IS NO SNOW COVERING THE GROUND ACROSS THE
HYDROLOGIC SERVICE AREA. BASIN-AVERAGE WATER EQUIVALENT ESTIMATES
CAN BE FOUND AT WWW.NOHRSC.NOAA.GOV.

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

COMBINED 13 NORTHEAST NJ RESERVOIRS WERE AROUND 4 PERCENT BELOW
NORMAL.

FUTURE WEATHER CONDITIONS - AT THIS TIME THERE ARE NO INDICATIONS
OF ANY WIDESPREAD HEAVY RAIN EVENTS THROUGH THE TWO WEEK OUTLOOK
PERIOD. THE LATEST 6-10 AND 8-14 DAY EXTENDED WEATHER OUTLOOKS
ISSUED BY THE NWS CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER (CPC) SUGGEST ABOVE
NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND NORMAL TO ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION FOR
THE ENTIRE HYDROLOGIC SERVICE AREA.
