...ICE JAM IMPACTS POSSIBLE ALONG THE YELLOWSTONE RIVER AND THE
MISSOURI RIVER UPSTREAM OF WILLISTON...
Ice break up continues along the Yellowstone River in Montana.
With mild temperatures expected over the next couple of days, ice
affected river rises will be possible on the Yellowstone in North
Dakota from Fairview, downstream to the Missouri River near
Buford. Ice affected rises may also be possible along the Missouri
River from the Yellowstone downstream to Trenton and Williston.
Colder temperatures are expected by the end of the work week, but
it`s possible that the ice may have already worked its way
through by then.
Those along the North Dakota reaches of the Yellowstone and the
Missouri River upstream of Lake Sakakawea, should be alert to
sudden significant river rises with little to no warning.
