    Weather Eye

    MADISON LOOKING GOOD
    That's For Now
    just lovin' the warm

    -------
    .. The depth of snow is encouraging. The current few days of warmth is pleasant. The snow will melt. The water will rise. We will fret and the fish will swim. All is well with the world.


    Hydrologic Outlook

    ...WARMER TEMPERATURES EARLY THIS WEEK TO BE FOLLOWED BY THE 
    POTENTIAL FOR WIDESPREAD PRECIPITATION AND RAIN ON SNOWPACK BY MID 
    WEEK... 
    WARMER TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED EARLY THIS WEEK BEFORE A PERIOD OF 
    COOLER AND WETTER CONDITIONS BY THE MIDDLE TO LATER PART OF THE 
    WEEK. AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES THROUGH TUESDAY WILL CLIMB INTO THE 60S 
    AT LOWER ELEVATIONS AND INTO THE 40S AND 50S IN THE MOUNTAINS. 
    OVERNIGHT LOWS AT MID-ELEVATIONS WILL REMAIN ABOVE FREEZING EACH 
    NIGHT. THIS WILL CAUSE AN INCREASE IN MOUNTAIN SNOWMELT WITH RISING 
    WATER LEVELS ANTICIPATED ON CREEKS...SMALL STREAMS AND RIVERS. 
    A PERIOD OF WETTER CONDITIONS IS EXPECTED BY MID TO LATE WEEK. AT 
    THE ONSET OF PRECIPITATION ON TUESDAY AFTERNOON...SNOW LEVELS 
    BETWEEN 7500 AND 8500 FEET INDICATE THAT RAIN MAY FALL ON TOP OF 
    MOUNTAIN SNOWPACK AND INCREASE THE RATE OF SNOWMELT. WITH COOLER AIR 
    MOVING IN WEDNESDAY...PRECIPITATION WILL CHANGE TO ALL SNOW AND 
    REMAIN SNOW THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK. 
    THE SITUATION WILL CONTINUE TO BE MONITORED BY THE NATIONAL WEATHER 
    SERVICE. RESIDENTS ALONG RIVERS...STREAMS...AND CREEKS SHOULD 
    PREPARE FOR RISING WATER LEVELS...AND BE PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION IF 
    WATERWAYS EXCEED BANKFULL.
