Notice to Navigators: Upper Mississippi River

RIAC: UMR Spring Snow Melt Pepin Ice Bridge


As info...


I wouldn’t expect much at this time from snow melt on the UMR:

Lots of snow info here:   the animations are entertaining

Note that most of northern MN drains to the Red River, Hudson Bay and Lake Superior:

And mountain snowpack was  below average on 21FEB, this runoff shows up in STL May-JUN from Missouri river

Lake Pepin Ice, next measurement scheduled for tomorrow

From last week, compared to prior years:
