 ...STRONG RIVER FLOWS WILL INCREASE RIVER HAZARDS...

FORECAST FOR TEMPERATURES TO RISE AGAIN TO ABOVE NORMAL EARLY NEXT
WEEK ALONG WITH ABOVE FREEZING TEMPERATURES DURING THE NIGHT FOR MID
TO HIGHER LEVEL SLOPES WILL RESULT IN AN INCREASE IN SNOW MELT.

LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL THIS WEEKEND MAY QUICKLY INCREASE FLOWS OVER
THE BANKS ESPECIALLY FOR THE SMALLER STREAMS AND CREEKS.

MANY RIVERS...STREAMS AND CREEKS WILL SEE THE HIGHEST FLOWS OF THE
SEASON BY THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. AT THIS TIME RIVER LEVELS MAY
REACH NEAR BANKFULL ON THE ELK...UPPER YAMPA...AND EAGLE RIVERS WITH
OTHER MAINSTEM LOCATIONS NOT FORECAST TO REACH BANKFULL LEVELS IN
THE NEXT FEW DAYS. IT IS ALSO LIKELY THAT MANY SMALL CREEKS AND
STREAMS ESPECIALLY IN THE NORTH AND CENTRAL PART OF WESTERN COLORADO
WILL REMAIN OR REACH BANKFULL THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.

RIVERS WILL RUN FAST...STRONG AND COLD. EXPECT EXTRA DEBRIS TO BE
SWEPT DOWNSTREAM. RIVER RUNNERS SHOULD USE CAUTION.
