Snowmelt and rain continue to cause flooding issues in north-central Montana this week. A FLOOD ADVISORY is in effect for a large area in north-central Montana, including Cut Bank, Havre, and Lewistown. A FLOOD WARNING is in effect for Chinook and the surrounding area, portions of Phillips and Valley counties, Clear Creek, Beaver Creek, Battle Creek, Big Sandy Creek, and the Milk River. Flood risk in these areas is Moderate. A FLOOD WATCH is in effect near these areas where flood conditions have not yet been observed, but are likely to occur in the near future. Take caution when driving through flooded areas.
We’re starting out this week with a little rain and snow, as an upper-level low-pressure system off of the Pacific coast begins to move inland. Precipitation will be the strongest today, lingering around the Mountain West until midweek. Warmer temperatures will be more consistent this week, not even dropping below freezing some nights! It certainly feels like Spring is starting to make up its mind.
Have a great day!
