HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GREAT FALLS MT
1145 AM MDT THU APR 3 2014

...WARMER TEMPERATURES WILL CAUSE INCREASED SNOWMELT NEXT WEEK
WITH WATER LEVELS ON CREEKS AND STREAMS EXPECTED TO RISE...

MUCH WARMER TEMPERATURES ARE FORECAST TO MOVE INTO MONTANA BY
TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY OF NEXT WEEK. AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES WILL
CLIMB INTO THE 60S AT LOWER ELEVATIONS AND INTO THE 40S AND 50S
IN THE MOUNTAINS. THIS WILL ALLOW SNOWMELT TO INCREASE IN THE
MOUNTAINS WITH RISING WATER LEVELS ANTICIPATED ON CREEKS...SMALL
STREAMS AND RIVERS. OVERNIGHT LOWS OVER THE PLAINS AND AT MID
LEVELS IN THE MOUNTAINS COULD REMAIN ABOVE FREEZING EACH NIGHT
...THEREBY PREVENTING ANY SLOWDOWN IN THE RATE OF SNOWMELT.

THE SITUATION WILL CONTINUE TO BE MONITORED BY THE NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE. IN ADDITION...RESIDENTS ALONG RIVERS...STREAMS...AND CREEKS
SHOULD PREPARE FOR RISING WATER LEVELS NEXT WEEK...AND BE PREPARED
TO TAKE ACTION IF WATERWAYS EXCEED BANKFULL.
