Hydrologic Outlook
National Weather Service Riverton WY
148 PM MST Thu Jan 4 2018

...River Ice Stabilizing across area Streams and Rivers...

With the recent cold snap, rivers and streams have rapidly
accumulated ice. Normally this process is gradual and results in
little, if any, impacts. However, with such a rapid pace of ice
development over the last week, the risk of localized, minor
low-land flooding has increased. Even larger rivers, such as
the Big Horn River and Wind River, have quickly developed ice.
There has been some improvement since Wednesday though and this
hydrologic outlook may be allowed to expire on Friday.

Please report any flooding to local law enforcement, and have
them relay the report to the National Weather Service.
