Non-dramatic Spring Runoff – Conditions Improving

Stream conditions updated March 11th.

A rapid turnaround from sub-zero temperatures on March 5th to unseasonably warm weather and near-record warmth beginning March 8th has led to a quick, spring runoff in southeast Minnesota. Waters have been running high and dirty at times, but in a not-so-dramatic fashion. Streams should be clearing nicely going into the weekend of March 14th.
