...Rising levels on mountain streams and the South Platte River this

The snowpack in the north central Colorado mountains above 10,000
feet is nearly 25 percent of the normal peak snowpack. Afternoon
temperatures above 9,000 feet will be in the 60s and lower 70s
through this weekend. This will accelerate snowmelt runoff resulting
in mountain streams running high and fast. Overall impacts from
mountain snowmelt runoff are expected to be low...but a few streams
could approach or exceed bankfull.

Persons with interests along creeks and rivers in north central
Colorado are urged to use caution. Stay clear of river banks that
could become unstable due to the high flows. Also be aware of the
dangers of cold mountain streams and lakes.
