...WARMER TEMPERATURES AND INCREASING HIGH ELEVATION SNOWMELT
WILL LEAD TO RISING RIVER AND STREAM LEVELS THIS WEEK...

A warming trend through the middle of the week will increase
melting of the high elevation snowpack in the Boise and West
Central Mountains. This will cause flows to increase on rivers and
streams fed by high elevation snowmelt, with the potential for
flooding along some waterways.

Rivers such as the South Fork Payette near Lowman, and Middle
Fork and South Fork of the Boise River will continue to run high
with another snowmelt peak expected later this week.

People living in flood prone areas along rivers and streams
should prepare for another round of higher flows and potential
flooding.

Rivers and streams are very dangerous during spring snowmelt. The
water is very swift and cold and can quickly carry you downstream.
