This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of central
Montana...south central Montana...southeast Montana and north
central Wyoming.

* Outlook: A period of wet and unsettled weather is expected
  tonight through Friday, with the heaviest precipitation being
  Thursday night and Friday. Portions of the forecast area could
  see 0.50 to 1.50 inches of rain, with the heavier amounts likely
  over southern Big Horn county into Sheridan county. Snow is
  expected to accumulate over area mountains and foothills. The
  snow could be heavy at times over Sheridan and southern Big Horn
  counties. Heaviest snow will occur Thursday evening into Friday

* Potential Impacts: The combination of a wet ground, snow melt
  from recent lower elevation snowfall and additional rainfall,
  will likely cause rises on rivers and streams with some minor
  flooding possible through Saturday. Also, look for significant
  ponding of water in low lying areas and very muddy local roads,
  making travel difficult. Heavy snow in Sheridan and southern Big
  Horn counties could cause difficult travel conditions and power
  outages. Also, the chilly and wet weather could be stressful on
  young livestock.


A Hazardous Weather Outlook is issued when hazardous weather could
impact the region within the next week. Be sure to stay tuned for
future updates as locations, timing, and impacts could change.
Begin preparations to mitigate any impacts that could result from
the hazardous weather.
