AccuWeather.com reports that larger rivers will continue to
crest through the early part of the week; however, a storm moving into the
northern Plains is not expected to agitate flooding over the next few days. A
storm later this week, on the other hand, could cause problems.
Floodwaters continue to flow downstream into the lower
Mississippi River Valley. Residents and businesses should continue to monitor
the situation as historic flooding is expected.
As floodwaters continue to flow downstream into the lower
Mississippi River Valley, the resulting flooding across the Midwest will go
down as the worst flooding in the 80 years that flood records have been kept.
The Mississippi River at Natchez, Miss., is forecast to exceed its flood stage
of 48.0 feet by Tuesday, and could rise an additional 5 feet or more by Sunday,
April 6. The Ohio River at Paducah, Ky., is expected to peak at 47 feet by
Wednesday morning -- 8 feet above its flood stage.
Most of the flooded waterways across the central Plains and
Midwest have begun to recede; however, warmer air spreading across the Midwest
today will hasten the melting of the snow left by a weekend clipper.
