Recent rainfall improves river navigation
Recent weather events across the Mississippi Valley will ensure continuing navigation on the Mississippi River through mid-February, even if no additional rain falls between now and Feb. 15.
The period from January 9-13 saw three-eighths inches of rain, with10+ inches locally, over the Ohio River Valley and the Mississippi watershed south of St. Louis, Mo. Warm temperatures recently also melted existing snow water equivalents of one to two inches over the watershed to the north of Memphis, helping provide much needed relief from the persistent drought plaguing the middle and lower Mississippi valley since mid-2012.
