The U-S Army Corps of Engineers is the latest agency to issue a warning about the potential for major flooding, based on the snowpack in the Rocky Mountains.

While the mountain snowpack may only be slightly above normal, there’s a lot of snow on the ground across the region which will soon melt as well.
Low says the Corps of Engineers is putting out a series of long-range flood outlooks for the upcoming three months.

Low says localized flooding due to ice jams is also possible over the next few weeks.
