Flooding Potential High on South Fork
Written by Andrew-Rossi on March 6, 2018
It could be a very wet spring.
Mountain snowpack and associated snow water equivalents across central and through northwestern Wyoming were generally above, to much above, average as of the end of February- that’s according to James Fahey with the National Weather Service out of Riverton.
Fahey predicts a moderate to high potential for flooding associated with snowmelt runoff across extreme lower portions of the Big Wind Watershed and over upper sections of the South Fork of the Shoshone; and there is moderate potential for flooding across the middle to lower portions of the North and South Forks of the Shoshone Basin, as well as along headwater creeks and streams on the west side of the Big Horn Mountains.
