This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

With just two weeks until the official start of spring the National Weather Service has released some good and bad news for Iowa.

The flood outlook shows nearly zero potential for flooding across most of the state.  Northern Iowa does have the possibility of flash flooding until the ground thaws.

Unfortunately, no flooding potential means we haven’t had enough precipitation this winter to put a dent in the on-going drought. Officials expect the drought to last until at least May of 2013.

The National Weather Service will continue to monitor the flood outlook. Reports could still change depending on the amount of precipitation we see over the next two months.
