The rivers have responded to the thunderstorms yesterday and this morning and the river levels have risen slightly. According to the latest hydrological modeling, the river levels are expected to rise slightly but below the 2-year return period levels this weekend. With the forecast seasonably hot and dry weather pattern beginning Saturday, the river levels are expected to drop further next week.
