Runoff predicted to be below normal for the Missouri River

OMAHA, N.E.(WNAX)- The Corps of Engineers is still predicting below normal runoff into the Missouri River system.

Ryan Larsen is with the Missouri River Basin Water Management Office in Omaha.

Larsen says they don’t see much change in the months ahead.

Larsen says mountain snowpack has increased some in recent weeks.

The Corps also said the lowered runoff forecast may result in shortening the river barge navigation season.
