..INCREASING TEMPERATURES TO ACCELERATE SPRING SNOWMELT
 
 
SLOW BUT STEADY SNOWMELT WILL CONTINUE THROUGH MIDWEEK WITH HIGH  
TEMPERATURES IN THE 40S DROPPING BACK BELOW THE FREEZING MARK  
OVERNIGHT. HOWEVER, TEMPERATURES WILL FINALLY BEGIN TO INCREASE  
TOWARDS THE END OF THE WEEK WITH HIGHS EXPECTED TO REACH INTO THE  
50S WITH LOWS NEAR OR ABOVE FREEZING BY THE WEEKEND. THE WARMER  
CONDITIONS WILL ACCELERATE THE SNOWMELT FOR LOCATIONS THAT HAVE  
ANY LINGERING SNOW COVER. PONDING OF WATER IN LOW LYING AREAS CAN  
BE EXPECTED AS WATER BEGINS TO MAKE ITS WAY TO THE LOCAL RIVER  
SYSTEM.  
 
STAY TUNED TO ADDITIONAL FLOOD WATCHES AND WARNINGS AS RIVER  
LEVELS BEGIN TO RISE AND THE POSSIBILITY FOR OVERLAND FLOODING  
INCREASES.
