HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DENVER CO
626 PM MDT FRI MAY 23 2014

...STRONG FLOWS THROUGH THE MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND ON RIVERS AND
CREEKS IN NORTH CENTRAL COLORADO...

OVERNIGHT TEMPERATURES IN MUCH OF THE HIGH COUNTRY WILL REMAIN ABOVE
FREEZING. TEMPERATURES ARE FORECAST TO RISE AGAIN TO ABOVE AVERAGE
EARLY NEXT WEEK. THIS WILL RESULT IN ADDITIONAL MOUNTAIN SNOWMELT
RUNOFF AND INCREASED WATER LEVELS IN STREAMS FLOWING OUT OF THE
NORTH CENTRAL MOUNTAINS.

LOCALLY HEAVIER RAINFALL THIS WEEKEND COULD INCREASE FLOWS FURTHER
ESPECIALLY ON SMALLER CREEKS.

THE BIG THOMPSON AND CACHE LA POUDRE RIVERS EAST OF THE CONTINENTAL
DIVIDE AND FRASER RIVER WEST OF THE DIVIDE MAY SEE WATER OVERFLOW
INTO LOW LYING AREAS SUCH AS OVER BIKE PATHS AND TRAILS ALONG THESE
RIVERS. HOWEVER...THESE RIVERS ARE FORECAST TO REMAIN BELOW FLOOD
STAGE FOR THE NEXT 5 DAYS.

STREAMS WILL RUN FAST...STRONG AND COLD. EXPECT EXTRA DEBRIS TO BE
SWEPT DOWNSTREAM. RIVER RAFTERS AND WATER ENTHUSIASTS SHOULD USE
CAUTION.
