More Flooding Likely on the Way for Sheridan County
Laramie, Wy – The National Weather Service has extended the flood warning for Sheridan County until Monday. It was set to expire Friday at noon. A captain with the Sheridan Police Department says the level of water receded a bit today, but they are holding their breath until this weekend.
Weather forecaster Sally Springer says it is almost guaranteed that temperatures will warm up and start to melt the snow in the mountains. She says it snowed ten inches at higher elevations and that will melt to at least five inches of moisture. All of that means streams and creeks will rise significantly.
Springer says Sheridan County will likely see some flooding tomorrow afternoon and it should peak by Monday, though there could be flooding after Monday in some low lying areas.
