If you are in the Upper Midwest, the NOAA is giving you a low risk of river flooding this spring due to below-average snowfall this past winter. In fact, these areas are seeing abnormally dry or moderate drought conditions according to the latest Drought Monitor report. Moving down to the Midwest, there is a 50% chance of moderate flooding in the lower Missouri River basin, including parts of Missouri and eastern Kansas. NOAA says this would be driven by rain and thunderstorm activity. In terms of any minor flooding, the NOAA believes parts of the Ohio River basin could see additional flooding depending on rainfall this spring. This includes parts of Kentucky, southern Illinois and southwest Indiana.
