215 PM CST THU JAN 29 2015 /115 PM MST THU JAN 29 2015/

...CONDITIONS IMPROVING ON RIVERS AND STREAMS ACROSS THE MISSOURI
BASIN...

UNUSUALLY HIGH WATER ON RIVERS AND STREAMS ACROSS THE MISSOURI
BASIN EARLIER THIS WEEK HAVE DROPPED SIGNIFICANTLY LATE WEDNESDAY
AND INTO THURSDAY. THE THREAT OF HIGH WATER FROM ICE JAMS AND
STREAMFLOW WILL CONTINUE TO DECREASE INTO THE WEEKEND.

OTHER PROBLEMS OF INTEREST ARE THE RESERVOIRS AND SMALL LAKES THAT
ARE RISING DUE TO INCREASED INFLOW. ANGLERS WISHING TO FISH THESE
BODIES OF WATER SHOULD BE EXTRA CAREFUL AS WARM TEMPERATURES AND
RISING WATER RAPIDLY DETERIORATE ICE CONDITIONS NEAR THE SHORE.
ACCESS MAY BE DIFFICULT, IF NOT DANGEROUS. SOME, BUT NOT ALL, OF
THE LAKES THAT THIS IS A CONCERN FOR INCLUDE PATTERSON LAKE NEAR
DICKINSON, LAKE TSCHIDA, CAMELS HUMP, DAVIS DAM, AND OTHER SIMILAR
BODIES OF WATER.

RECORD WARM TEMPERATURES OVER THE PAST WEEK HAVE MELTED OUT LOWER
ELEVATION SNOWPACK...AND HAS BEGUN TO MELT SNOWPACK OVER AREA
FOOTHILLS BELOW 7000 FEET. THIS HAS RESULTED IN INCREASING FLOWS
ON AREA STREAMS AND RIVERS...WITH INDICATIONS OF ICE JAM FORMATION
IN SOME AREAS INCLUDING ALONG THE MUSSELSHELL AND TONGUE RIVERS.
AS WATER CONTINUES TO WORK INTO AREA WATERWAYS OVER THE NEXT FEW
DAYS THE THREAT OF ICE JAM FORMATION AND LOCALIZED FLOODING WILL
INCREASE. THOSE WITH INTERESTS NEAR WATERWAYS SHOULD BE ALERT FOR
ICE JAM FLOODING AND TAKE PRECAUTIONS NOW TO MOVE LIVESTOCK AND
EQUIPMENT TO HIGHER GROUND.
