National Weather Service has reduced flood risk projections slightly

The National Weather Service has reduced flood risk projections slightly since January.

They cited the lack of large late January or February storms, reduced snowfall, and shallow frost depths.

However, the NWS said, it is not a large risk reduction, and the area still has very wet soils and high streamflows from last fall. Snowpack is above normal, and could lead to high runoff potential.

The risk for flooding continues to be substantial.
