the dreaded snowmelt arrives

US National Weather Service Missoula Montana

Temperatures will be on rise during the next few days reaching into the 70s to near 80 degrees by Thursday. This warmup will accelerate melting of a substantial snowpack (140-200 pecent of normal) currently in the mountains.

Everyone living near small streams, creeks, and even some of the larger rivers (especially the Yaak and Bitterroot) should monitor water levels later this week and during the weekend.
