The snowpack estimate for the Bighorn basin was set at 147% of normal according to the Wyoming Resource Data Systems website.

That estimate posted yesterday, estimated the entire state’s snowpack to be as high as 176% of normal.

The Wind River Range has a snowpack estimate of more than 300%.

The Sweetwater basin is estimated to be close to 350%.

Warmer temperatures could cause flow levels from streams and rivers to be higher than those seen in many years.

In fact, local officials in the Wind River area and Red Cross personnel are making preliminary plans in preparation for spring floods.
