This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of central
Montana...south central Montana...southeast Montana and north
central Wyoming.

* Outlook: A period of chilly and wet weather is expected today
  through Friday, with the heaviest precipitation being tonight and
  Friday. Portions of the forecast area could see 0.50 to 1.50
  inches of rain, with the heavier amounts likely over southern Big
  Horn county into Sheridan county. Snow is expected to accumulate
  over area mountains and foothills. The snow will be heavy at
  times over Sheridan and southern Big Horn counties. Heaviest snow
  will occur Thursday evening into Friday morning.

* Potential Impacts: The combination of a wet ground, snow melt
  from recent lower elevation snowfall and additional rainfall,
  will likely cause rises on rivers and streams with some minor
  flooding possible through Saturday, especially over Sheridan
  county. Also, look for significant ponding of water in low lying
  areas and very muddy local roads, making travel difficult. Heavy
  snow in Sheridan and southern Big Horn counties will cause
  difficult travel conditions and possible power outages. Also,
  the chilly and wet weather could be stressful on young livestock.


A Hazardous Weather Outlook is issued when hazardous weather could
impact the region within the next week. Be sure to stay tuned for
future updates as locations, timing, and impacts could change.
Begin preparations to mitigate any impacts that could result from
the hazardous weather.
