Widespread Rainfall Occurred Monday through Tuesday Morning

A strong cold front swept through western and central Wyoming on Monday.
This cold front combined with plentiful moisture, upslope flow and weak instability
resulted in scattered showers and thunderstorms along and ahead of the cold front
with more steady rains behind the cold front.  Preliminary rainfall amounts are from
Monday morning through Tuesday morning ending between 6 and 8 AM.

In addition, rivers and creeks are on the rise due to this recent rainfall combined
with rapid snowmelt that occurred ahead of the cold front.
