This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for Western and Central Wyoming.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Snowmelt and ice jams will continue to cause some flooding in
southwest Wyoming. The area of greatest concern will be near the
confluence of the Hams Fork and Blacks Fork Rivers near the town
of Granger in western Sweetwater County.

Also elevated fire weather conditions for dormant fuels across
the lower elevations of southeast Fremont, Natrona, and southern
Johnson Counties.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Mild weather will continue to produce favorable conditions for
rapid snowmelt below 7500 feet across western and southwest
Wyoming. Minor flooding could occur along creeks and streams, as
well as significant ponding of water across low-lying ranchland,
especially on Saturday when the warmest temperatures of the week
are expected. In addition, fire weather conditions will be
elevated once again on Saturday with warming temperatures,
lowering relative humidity, and increasing wind in southeast
Fremont, Natrona, and southern Johnson Counties.


Spotters are requested to report flooding. Thank you!
