…Rising River Levels Through Saturday…
Warm temperatures the past few days in the higher terrain will continue to lead to area rivers and streams seeing an increase in flows. Rivers are expected to reach their highest levels by Saturday. Cooler temperatures over the weekend will slow snowmelt, and rivers are forecast to be receding by late Sunday into Monday.
The following rivers are of highest concern, given their current
and forecasted high flows:
- Flathead River
- Yaak River
- Stillwater River
Those living near these rivers will want to keep a close eye on flows throughout the next several days. For more specifics on area river level forecasts, please see: water.weather.gov/ahps2/index.php?wfo=mso
