Short summary
Disaster managers would like to use seasonal forecasts to anticipate flooding months in advance. However, current seasonal forecasts give information on rainfall instead of flooding.

We recommend several forecast adjustments and research opportunities that would improve flood information at the seasonal timescale in different regions.
