Hydrologic Outlook


1042 AM MDT Tue Mar 26 2019

...Snow Melt Impacts Continue through the Week...

Recent warm temperatures will continue to result in low elevation
snow melt across the area. With the ground still frozen in some
locations, this melt water can not soak in and is running off,
filling creeks, streams, and culverts. Water flowing overland and
accumulating in low lying areas will continue to result in low
land flooding, water on roadways, and basement flooding. In
addition, water flowing into creeks and streams will increase the
potential for flooding. As the ground thaws, muddy roads may
strand vehicles and impede or cut off travel in some rural areas.

In addition, a strong spring storm system will affect the area
Wednesday night into Friday bringing heavy, wet snow to many
locations. Stay tuned to the forecast for the latest details on
this spring storm.

If you have not already done so, now is the time to move
equipment and livestock out of low lying areas and away from
waterways. Move heavy accumulations of snow away from home
foundations, and take steps to prevent water from making it into
basements. Please report any flooding or ice jam development to
local law enforcement, and ask them to pass the report on to the
National Weather Service.
