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

A warming trend Memorial Day weekend through the middle of the
next 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 late next 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.
