HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK

453 AM MST WED JAN 28 2015

RECORD WARM TEMPERATURES OVER THE PAST WEEK HAVE MELTED OUT LOWER
ELEVATION SNOWPACK...AND HAS BEGUN TO MELT SNOWPACK OVER AREA
FOOTHILLS BELOW 7000 FEET. THIS HAS RESULTED IN INCREASING FLOWS
ON AREA STREAMS AND RIVERS...WITH INDICATIONS OF ICE JAM FORMATION
IN SOME AREAS INCLUDING ALONG THE MUSSELSHELL AND TONGUE RIVERS.
AS WATER CONTINUES TO WORK INTO AREA WATERWAYS OVER THE NEXT FEW
DAYS THE THREAT OF ICE JAM FORMATION AND LOCALIZED FLOODING WILL
INCREASE. THOSE WITH INTERESTS NEAR WATERWAYS SHOULD BE ALERT FOR
ICE JAM FLOODING AND TAKE PRECAUTIONS NOW TO MOVE LIVESTOCK AND
EQUIPMENT TO HIGHER GROUND.

...ABNORMAL RUNOFF FROM RECENT RAINFALL...

RELATIVELY LIGHT RAINS...BETWEEN A FEW HUNDREDTHS OF AN INCH TO
NEAR ONE-HALF INCH FELL ACROSS THE SOUTHWESTERN QUARTER OF THE
STATE THIS PAST WEEKEND. THIS MODEST RAINFALL HAS PRODUCED
UNUSUALLY HIGH AMOUNTS OF RUNOFF. SOME STREAMS REMAIN AT LEVELS
WELL ABOVE NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR. THE AFFECTED STREAMS
INCLUDE BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO...THE KNIFE RIVER...HEART RIVER...
CANNONBALL RIVER...BEAVER CREEK NEAR LINTON...AND THE LITTLE
MISSOURI RIVER. WHILE NO REPORTS OF SIGNIFICANT FLOODING HAVE BEEN
RECEIVED...SEVERAL REPORTS OF MINOR ICE JAMS INDICATE THAT ICE IS
MOVING AT SOME LOCATIONS AND IT IS LIKELY THIS WILL CONTINUE UNTIL
LATE IN THE WEEK.

NOT ONLY ARE SMALL RIVERS AND STREAMS RUNNING HIGH...BUT SEVERAL
RESERVOIRS ARE RISING IN RESPONSE TO INCREASED INFLOW. SHORELINE
CONDITIONS AS RESERVOIR AND RIVER LEVELS RISE DETERIORATE AND CAN
POSE A SIGNIFICANT HAZARD FOR ACCESS. ANGLERS ARE URGED TO
CAREFULLY CHECK THE ICE BEFORE VENTURING OUT WITH A VEHICLE.
