While some streams in the northeastern United States are flowing at normal or above normal rates, others have not felt the effects of snowmelt, according to hydrologists at the U.S. Geological Survey.

On March 11, flow of the Potomac River near Washington, D.C., was 0.29 billion m3 per day, nearly five times higher than the normal flow of 0.06 billion m3 per day for this time of year. Flows throughout Virginia have also been above normal in 1994.
