At 325 PM MDT, the Green River near La Barge was holding nearly
steady just below 10.0 feet. Flood stage is 9 feet and moderate
flooding begins at 10.0 feet. The river is expected to rise to
around 10.1 feet by Saturday afternoon before dropping to around 9.8
feet later on Sunday. This 10.0 foot level is similar to the crest
experienced earlier in June 2017. Widespread minor lowland flooding
is likely near the river. Area roads that could be impacted by the
flood waters include Lincoln County Road 318 near La Barge and
whalen Road.

At 330 PM Friday, the New Fork river near Big Piney was up to to 7.8
feet. This reading is just below flood stage of 8.0 feet but still
above action stage of 7.0 feet. The river level is expected to
fluctuate between about 7.9 and 7.1 feet through the
weekend... falling below action stage by Sunday night.

Recreation of any kind is strongly discouraged on or along either
the green or New Fork rivers and their tributaries.

Even with cooler weather expected for this weekend, this Flood
Warning may eventually be extended through Sunday due to the
continued high water on the Green River near La Barge.
