212 PM MDT Fri May 29 2020

...Much higher flows along creeks and small streams will occur
this weekend into next week due to the expected near record high

Snowpack at the 8,000 to 10,000 foot elevation is ripe (water
laden), and will be melting quickly this weekend into next week. There
could also be showers and thunderstorms at times especially on

The greatest concern will be across western Wyoming where copious
amounts of snow remain in the headwaters of area creeks and rivers.
The river stage at Pacific Creek increased to 7.5 feet Thursday
night. Action stage is 7 feet. The river stage is forecast to
rise to near bankfull or 8 feet by Monday. The Gros ventre Creek
at Kelly is presently at the action stage of 7 feet. The Green
River at La Barge is forecast to reach the action stage of 8 feet
by the middle of next week.

Other areas of concern include the Wind River at Dubois where the
river level is expected to come close to the action stage of 4.5
feet by Tuesday. The river stage along the Medicine Lodge Creek
at Hyattville has reached near the action stage of 3.5 feet.

Remember, during active snowmelt runoff, mountain creeks flow the
highest during evening and overnight hours, through the early
morning. Do not attempt to cross a fast moving creek or stream at
these times as the power of water will easily carry you downstream.
