Episode Narrative A strong upper level low stalled west of Wyoming. The resultant upslope flow east of the Continental Divide generated copious rainfall amounts across the lower elevations with accumulating snowfall in the mountains. Snowfall totals topped one foot in portions of the Absaroka and eastern Wind River ranges. Snowfall of 6 to 12 inches was common in the Bighorn Mountains and Yellowstone National Park.
Event Narrative Ten Sleep Creek was out of its banks near the town of Ten Sleep as a result of snowmelt runoff and heavy rain. A nearby section of the Nowood River was also running high. Rainfall totals ranged from around 1.25 to near 2.00 inches.
