But, not much.

Even if the entire front range of the Rockies were severely flooded, that's an awfully tiny percentage of the total area drained by the Mississippi. The proverbial drop in the bucket is currently a much bigger drop, that's all. That's the logic behind my best guess anyway.
Here's a good link|

my daughter who lives a short walk from the Mississippi dowstream of New Orleans. It takes much more general, prolonged rain to bring the lower river up.

I attempted to paddle the lower miss this spring, and got chased off by floods. Coast guard shut down the section of river we were on. So now I am gun shy of flooding! I am trying again next week. Just six hundred miles left. Cant wait to get this done and over with. I know I am going in hurricane season now, but that is how my work schedule played out. Thanks for all your guys help. Made me feel much better.
very, very little|

Danger of flooding this time of year. Too warm, no snow melt
Good luck on your journey.|
