Spring Flood Forecast Showing Low to Moderate for Wyoming

NOAA Flood Potential Forecast Map
National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has released a potential flooding outlook for the state of Wyoming, based on Mountain snow pack and associated snow water equivalents.

Most of the state is looking at low potential for flooding due to springtime snow melt, however some regions are seeing higher risks. However, outlooks aren’t showing any areas of the state showing more than a “moderate” risk.

“First part of the water year, the snow pack was the greatest in the Powder and the Big Horn basins,” says Jeff Fahey, a Hydrologist at NOAA.  ”Those areas are at a higher potential than the rest of the state.”

He says that when looking at these numbers it’s important to remember that it’s early in the game to come to any real conclusions.

Areas currently predicted for moderate flooding potential are Powder River Drainage as well as along eastern portions of the Big Horn Basin, specifically bodies of water near Kaycee, Buffalo and Ten Sleep.

The Little Snake River near Baggs and along the Encampment River near Riverside are also predicted for moderate flood risk.
