Flooding has become a major problem across Montana this month.

In this week’s Weather Wise, flood season in Montana really comes in two phases: one now, and one later.

Several Montana rivers including the Missouri, Yellowstone, milk, Musselshell and Little Bighorn are officially flooded, with water levels exceeding flood stage along certain points of these waterways.

The first peak of flood season is here, the second is coming when mountain snow-melt maximizes in several weeks.
