Episode Narrative Lower elevation snowmelt in the southern Wind River Range generated minor flooding along the Sweetwater River.
Event Narrative Several ranchers along the Sweetwater River in southern Fremont County reported minor flooding as a result of rapid snowmelt. Much of the flooding occurred around Sweetwater Station. Occasional afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms added to the rise of the river. Cooler temperatures and a loss of low elevation snow slowed the rising water before the end of May.
