Widespread Flooding Forecast

By RANDOLPH E. SCHMID – 1 day ago

WASHINGTON (AP) — Government forecasters said Thursday that the floods washing over large parts of the Midwest are just a taste of things to come, with one meteorologist complaining about a jet stream "on steroids."

Record rainfall and melting snow packs will continue to cause rivers to overflow in large areas of the country, the National Weather Service said.

The greatest flooding danger includes much of the Mississippi River basin, the Ohio River basin, the lower Missouri River basin, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, most of New York, all of New England and portions of the West, including Colorado and Idaho.

"Overall moisture is unprecedented for this time of year over an area that extends over 1,000 miles," said Doug LeComte, a meteorologist at the government's Climate Prediction Center.

Pretty frickin sweet!

When I was living in Kentucky during 3rd grade something similar happened and it rained nonstop for over a week. EVERYTHING was flooded. Should be a good year for crazy weather, last two years were quite boring except those awesome fires in So Cal
