Flood Preparation

Dave Coleman, Sheridan County Emergency Management Coordinator

FLOOD WATCH

* THE TONGUE RIVER NEAR RANCHESTER IN SHERIDAN COUNTY IN NORTH
CENTRAL WYOMING.

* FROM FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY AFTERNOON

* WARM TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE UPCOMING WEEKEND.
THIS WILL CONTINUE TO CREATE HIGH ELEVATION SNOW MELT OVER THE
BIG HORN MOUNTAINS. CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION WILL ALSO RETURN
TO THE REGION ON THURSDAY AND CONTINUE THROUGH THE WEEKEND. THE
COMBINATION OF POSSIBLE RUNOFF FROM RAINFALL AND HIGH ELEVATION
SNOW MELT WILL CREATE ADDITIONAL RISES ON THE TONGUE RIVER AND
MAY CREATE FLOODING IN THE RANCHESTER AREA.
