SOUTHWEST NORTH DAKOTA
Flood Advisory for melting snow remains in effect for southwestern
Sioux... southeastern Hettinger... western Grant and Adams counties
Six to twelve inches of snow fell across the advisory area... with
localized areas around 20 inches. This heavy... wet snow will
continue to melt today as temperatures rise into the 50s.
This Flood Advisory will likely be extended through Wednesday. Look
for an update to this Flood Advisory by early this afternoon.
Soils across southwest North Dakota are already moist... and
continued runoff from snowmelt is likely to cause flooding of County
and township roads in low lying areas. Street flooding in towns is
also likely to continue as slush blocks drainage systems. Within
bank rises are expected on creeks and streams flowing into the
Cannonball river early this week and noticeable rises on the
Cannonball are possible later in the week.
Localized flooding is expected to continue over mainly rural areas
of Adams... southeastern Hettinger... southwestern Sioux and western
Grant counties... including the towns of
Bentley... Bucyrus... Burt... Carson... Elgin... Haynes... Heart Butte
dam... Heil... Hettinger... Leith... Mott... New Leipzig... Reeder and
