...The Flood Watch continues for the following rivers in Montana...

  Stillwater River near Absarokee affecting Stillwater County

.Recent rainfall and high elevation snowmelt has caused the
Stillwater River near Absarokee to run high. Warm temperatures
Friday and Saturday, and additional rainfall likely over the holiday
weekend, will allow water levels to continue to rise through the
weekend, into next week. Moderate to major flooding is possible
early next week if heavy rainfall occurs over the weekend, but there
is still some uncertainty on exactly how much rain will fall, and
the impact of this rainfall on the river.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means that flooding is possible. Now is the time to
prepare for action in the event flooding occurs.
