                     SPRING FLOOD POTENTIAL
          FOR THE GREEN AND BEAR RIVER BASINS IN WYOMING

                       FEBRUARY 5, 2019

The 2019 spring runoff flood potential due to snowmelt is
not high at this time in the Upper Green River and Bear River
Basins of southwest Wyoming due to below average snowpack.
However, it is very early in the snow accumulation season and
conditions can change before runoff begins.

January precipitation and water year precipitation (October-
January) were close to, but below average for river basins in
southwest Wyoming. Precipitation and snow conditions as of
February 1st are listed below.

The spring runoff flood potential will be re-evaluated in
early March and an updated product will be issued at that time.
