Snowmelt Crest Impacting Mississippi River

Spring snowmelt to the north resulting in significant Mississippi River flooding concern downstream. Senior Service Hydrologist Matt Wilson is with the National Weather Service in the Quad Cities.



At Rock Island Lock and Dam 15 in the Quad Cities, the river is now expected to crest in the 21-to-23 foot range during the early part of May. The record crest is 22.7 feet in 2019.


With little or no additional precipitation in the basin over the next few weeks, Wilson says the crest is expected to be near the lower end of the range.
