CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) – Regional experts for the National Weather Service say the risk of flooding is at or below normal for Iowa this spring. Cedar Rapids television station KCRG says the reports released Thursday by service meteorologists in Des Moines and Davenport in Iowa and La Crosse, Wisconsin, covered the potential for river and lake flooding in their respective coverage areas through the end of May.

They cited the general lack of snowpack in much of Iowa and said stream levels and frost depths also were near normal for this time of year.  The meteorologists noted that their predictions could change with the weather. The weather service offices are scheduled to update their spring flooding outlooks on March 5.
