The National Weather Service in Riverton has extended the

* Flood Warning for...
  Snowmelt in...
  Central Fremont County in central Wyoming...

* Until 530 PM MDT Saturday

At 339 PM MDT, The Wind River at Crowheart was near 9.9 feet, which
is just below flood stage of 10 feet. The river will likely remain
just below flood stage over the next 10 to 14 hours before rising
again to near flood stage. Below Diversion Dam river levels are
around 14 inches over flood stage due to high flow out of Bull Lake.
The Wind River at Kinnear is currently at 8.7 feet and slowly
falling. It should continue to slowly fall over the next 2 to 4
hours before rising slowly later this evening and into Saturday
morning as water releases upstream at Bull Lake make it back into
the area. At these levels, water may begin to run across Highway 26
at mile marker 104, 30 miles west of Riverton. Low-lying
agricultural areas will also experience some minor flooding.

deaths occur in vehicles.

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.
