...Rising river and stream levels this weekend into next week...

Well above normal temperatures are expected into early next week
resulting in continued melting of the existing snow pack (above 8000
feet) in the mountains this weekend into early next week. The snow
melt will cause increased flows along rivers and streams emerging
from the mountains. This includes the Yellowstone, Clarks Fork of
the Yellowstone, Shields, Boulder, Stillwater, Little Bighorn and
Tongue Rivers, as well as numerous other smaller streams.

Afternoon temperatures at 8000 feet will reach the 60s and 70s, and
overnight temperatures will stay above freezing through much of the
night. Flooding resulting in significant impacts is not expected at
this time, but many rivers will reach the highest levels we have
seen this spring this weekend into early next week.

Recreationists near the foothills should be prepared for changing
conditions and use extra caution when in and near the water. Flows
will be fast, and the water is cold. Those with interests near
waterways should move equipment and livestock away from low lying
