HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BILLINGS MT
812 PM MDT MON MAY 25 2015

...RISES ARE EXPECTED THIS WEEK ON THE TONGUE AND POWDER RIVERS
IN CUSTER AND ROSEBUD COUNTIES...

HEAVY RAIN FELL UPSTREAM OVER CENTRAL WYOMING THIS PAST WEEKEND
AND THAT WATER WILL MOVE DOWNSTREAM AND CAUSE RISES ON THE TONGUE
AND POWDER RIVERS THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS. THERE IS UNCERTAINTY AS
TO HOW MUCH WATER WILL ACTUALLY REACH ROSEBUD AND CUSTER COUNTIES
SINCE SOME WATER WILL LEAVE THE CHANNELS UPSTREAM. HOWEVER...SOME
RISK OF FLOODING EXISTS...ESPECIALLY ALONG THE POWDER RIVER IN
CUSTER COUNTY BY LATE THIS WEEK.

ANYONE WITH INTERESTS NEAR THE TONGUE AND POWDER RIVERS NEEDS TO
CLOSELY MONITOR THE FORECAST. CONSIDER MOVING LIVESTOCK AND
EQUIPMENT TO HIGHER GROUND.
