* At 8:15 PM Wednesday the stage was 19.7 feet.
* Moderate Flood Stage is 30.0 feet.

* Ice jams are very common at Oslo and cannot be ruled out.
The effect of a possible ice jam is not included in this
forecast. Previous break-up ice jams have added 5 ft or
more to an open-water crest. The accumulating freezing
degree days this year are significantly lower than during
these past break-up jams, so we may not see such severity
this year.
