    (Fremont County, WY) – The National Weather Service in Riverton issued a snow melt flood advisory for portions of Fremont County yesterday, June 10 at 2:50 PM, that is in effect until 1:00 PM tomorrow, June 11.

    The NWSR stated that flooding caused by snowmelt is expected to continue as temperatures rise, which will affect a portion of central Wyoming, including Fremont County.

    The NWSR shared that at 2:50 PM on Monday, gauge reports indicated snowmelt due to warm temperatures, which will cause minor flooding in low-lying and poor drainage areas,
    make some low-water crossings impassable, and lead to elevated river or stream flows.


    Some locations that will experience these conditions include: Lander, Hudson, Milford, Sinks Canyon State Park, Frye Lake, Worthen Meadows Reservoir, Sinks Canyon Campground and Lander Hunt Field.

    “Turn around, don’t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood deaths occur in vehicles.”
