Below normal temps could lead to spring flooding

ABERDEEN, S.D. (WNAX) – A below normal temperature trend could be part of the set up for spring flooding.

South Dakota State Climatologist Laura Edwards says the long range forecasts have been pretty consistent.

Edwards says a rapid change from cold to warm is not ideal.


Edwards says looking farther out, there is some hope of more normal weather by mid summer.


The first official flood forecasts will be out later this month.
