Fremont County Flood Watch is On for the Holiday Weekend

By  | 

The Wind River Mountains continue to get snow and now sits at 250% normal snowpack levels.

As all of Fremont County waits for the snow to melt and floods to happen, but weather service hydrologists say it won't be this week.

This week’s temperatures did get warm enough to melt some snow, so expect to see higher river levels going into the Memorial Day weekend.

Jim Fahey, Weather Service Hydrologist commented, “We are expecting a cold front to come in through tomorrow and then cool us off for most of Memorial Day weekend which will cool the mountain run-off as well."

Last Thursday’s snow storm added another two to four inches of snow water equivalent on the mountains above 85-hundred feet.

Mountain areas like Deer Park and Hobbs Park still have 30 plus inches of snow-pack.
