US Army Corps of Engineers predict below normal year for runoff of the Missouri River

OMAHA, N.E.(WNAX)- The Corps of Engineers is predicting a below normal year for runoff into the Missouri River System.

Kevin Grode, with the Corps in Omaha, says mountain snowpack appears to have peaked.

Grode says that snowpack figures greatly into the predicted runoff.

Grode says most of the runoff for the year will happen between now and mid summer.

The Corps issued the report during their virtual spring meetings held last week.
