Meteorologists/Climatologists...


NOAA has released a news release type story on spring flooding and the 
outlook across the US. In the release, it states the following:

Major floods striking America's heartland this week offer a preview of 
the spring seasonal outlook, according to NOAA's National Weather 
Service <http://www.nws.noaa.gov/>. Several factors will contribute to 
above-average flood conditions, including record rainfall in some states 
and snow packs, which are melting and causing rivers and streams to 
crest over their banks. This week, more than 250 communities 
<http://www.weather.gov/ahps/> in a dozen states are experiencing flood 
conditions.

The detailed release with entire story along with forecast graphics and 
a link to Flood awareness information can be found at the following NOAA 
internet site:

Keep in mind that /*NOAA's national flood awareness week continues ... 
from March 17 to March 21, 2008*/. In Vermont, flooding is a possibility 
year-round due to ice jams and spring snow melt in winter/spring...heavy 
rain and thunderstorms in the summer and remnants of tropical storms 
during the fall as well as fall and winter rain storms. Know the flood 
safety tips ahead of time by checking out another NOAA internet site:
