The February storms that have piled up snow in the mountains of Vermont have prompted emergency planners to begin preparing for the possibility of flooding when the snow starts to melt. The National Weather Service has begun issuing biweekly reports on the spring flooding threat, which currently is at near or slightly above normal. ‘‘The spring flood threat really has a lot to do with what happens from basically mid-February through April,’’ said Scott Whittier of the weather service office in South Burlington. At worst, Vermont could see a repeat of 2011, when heavy winter snows and spring rains kept Lake Champlain well above flood stage until late June and was followed by catastrophic statewide flooding from Tropical Storm Irene.
