Much cooler afternoon mountain temperatures are expected Tuesday through Thursday

High flows will continue along creeks and rivers over the Wind, Green,
Shoshone, and Sweetwater Basins through early next week.  By the middle of
next week, flows along a majority of streams and rivers will be noticeably lower.

Peak flow of 18,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) is expected at the Green River
near LaBarge by Monday afternoon of next week--which makes it the third highest

Increased reservoir releases out of Boysen and Fontenelle Reservoirs will

next week.   Cities and towns below the reservoirs to include Thermopolis, Worland,
Basin, and Green River will continue to have localized lowland flooding with the
high flows.
