Warm temperatures will melt low elevation snow this week. There are several inches of liquid locked up in the Northwest snow pack. Temperatures will climb into the 40s and 50s across much of Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming on Monday. That plus plenty of sunshine will help to melt snowpack. With temperatures above freezing, more snow will melt in the coming days. Muddy and slushy rural roads could lead to travel delays and difficulties. Fields with poor drainage will likely experience flooding and standing water. Thankfully, only minor rises in streams are expected, but there is still a potential for ice jams and flooding. Temperatures will continue to warm through the week well above average. We will see a significant amount of snow melt.
