...Rivers and Streams Could Respond Quickly to Rainfall this
Weekend...

Abnormally high temperatures over an extended period have
accelerated the high elevation snow melt. Flows in area rivers,
streams, and creeks will continue to run at elevated levels as the
recent snowmelt and reservoir releases work downstream.
Significant flooding is NOT forecast at this time as many
waterways peak for the season this week into the the early
weekend.

Rainfall is forecast Friday into Saturday. Rivers, streams and
creeks could react quickly and run near or slightly over bankfull
conditions causing localized lowland flooding due to the extra
water.

Anyone planning to recreate on area waterways should maintain
awareness and use an abundance of caution in or near the water.
