Episode Narrative The first extended warm spell of the season produced an active period of snowmelt from an historic snowpack in the western Bighorn Mountains. As a result, waterways in and near the foothills of the Bighorn Mountains rose rapidly causing flooding in Big Horn and Washakie counties.
Event Narrative Flooding occurred on Shell, Horse, and Trapper creeks as snowmelt runoff increased. Lowland near the creeks and at least one guest ranch were impacted by the rising waters. No bridges were damaged by the high waters but several area roads were inundated and damaged.
