Wyoming Spring 2008 Snowmelt Flood Potential Outlook--Initial January Update

The Laramie Watershed, portions of the Upper North Platte Basin, and headwater locations of the Lower Green Drainage had above normal snow water equivalents (SWEs) at the beginning of January.  All other major watersheds had near normal to just below normal SWEs by the beginning of the month.

The initial spring 2008 snowmelt flood potential outlook calls for a moderate potential for headwater snowmelt flooding across the Laramie Watershed, portions of the Upper North Platte Basin, and portions of the Lower Green Draingage.  All other headwater locations across Wyoming can expect a generally low potential for flooding due to springtime snowmelt.
