...Rising river and stream levels will continue this week... Recent warm temperatures will result in melting of the existing snow pack (above 8000 feet) in the mountains this week. The snow melt will cause increased flows along rivers and streams emerging from the high country. This includes the Yellowstone, Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone, Shields, Boulder, Stillwater, Little Bighorn and Tongue Rivers, as well as numerous other smaller streams. Afternoon temperatures at 8000 feet will reach the 60s to lower 70s, and overnight temperatures should stay above freezing through much of the week. Significant flooding is not expected at this time, however, minor flooding is expected on many rivers and streams, as flows reach the highest levels of the Spring. Recreationists near the foothills should be prepared for changing conditions and use extra caution when in and near the water, as flows will be fast and the water cold. Many river banks will be undergoing erosion due to high flows, which could make walking near the water dangerous. Those with interests near waterways should move equipment and livestock away from low lying areas.
