During the last 24 hours ending at 12Z Thursday, scattered light snow
fell across Montana and North Dakota. Generally, the reported water
equivalents were less than a quarter of an inch for these areas,
however, a handful of locations had slightly higher amounts.
No significant precipitation is expected within the basin for the
next 24 hours. Light snow is forecast for the northern Rockies
through eastern North Dakota. During the following 24-hour period,
a winter storm is expected to move into the southeastern portion of
the basin. The affected WFOs are still trying to figure out the nature
of the precipitation that this storm will bring. Extremely cold
temperatures across the entire basin are beginning to promote the
growth of ice along many streams. Also, the cold is adversely
affecting stream gage equipment in many areas of the basin.
No flooding is occurring in the Missouri River basin and none is
expected. No ice jam flooding is being reported as of yet.
As stated in several alert messages yesterday, our office is still
having problems with distributing normal products because of a new
build with our operating system. Please continue to be patient.
