...WARM TEMPERATURES TO BRING INCREASED FLOWS IN RIVERS AND
STREAMS BY THE WEEKEND...

VERY WARM TEMPERATURES FORECAST THIS WEEK ARE EXPECTED TO
INCREASE SNOW MELT ACROSS AREA MOUNTAINS RESULTING IN
SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASED FLOWS ON AREA RIVERS AND STREAMS.
FORECASTS CALL FOR STREAM FLOWS TO INCREASE BY 5 TO 10 TIMES
CURRENT LEVELS BY THIS WEEKEND AT SOME LOCATIONS. AT THIS TIME
FORECASTS KEEP RIVER FLOWS WELL BELOW FLOOD STAGE FOR ALL
LOCATIONS.

FOR THOSE LIVING NEAR AREA WATERWAYS THIS LOOKS LIKE THE LAST
CHANCE TO FINALIZE ANY PREPARATIONS FOR RUNOFF SEASON. MOVE ANY
EQUIPMENT AND LIVESTOCK OUT OF LOW LYING AREAS NEAR RIVERS AND
STREAMS. FOR THOSE PLANNING RECREATION ON AREA WATERWAYS THIS
WEEKEND BE PREPARED FOR CHANGING CONDITIONS AND SIGNIFICANTLY
HIGHER FLOWS.
