...POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING LATER NEXT WEEK DUE TO RAPID SNOWMELT IN
THE NORTH CENTRAL MOUNTAINS. POTENTIAL FOR HUGE BOOFS...

KAYAKERS WILL FLOCK TO THE HIGH COUNTRY LIKE THE SALMON OF CAPISTRANO. PLEASE PICK THEM UP IF YOU SEE THEM HITCHHIKING. PLEASE CHEER FOR THEM ON THE BRIDGES AND BANKS IF YOU SEE THEM ON THE BIG THOMPSON...

A STRONG HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL BUILD OVER THE CENTRAL ROCKIES
NEXT WEEK. TEMPERATURES WILL BE ABOVE AVERAGE BY NEXT WEDNESDAY
/JUNE 1ST/ AND ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN ABOVE AVERAGE THROUGH THE END
OF NEXT WEEK. HIGHS WILL BE IN THE 50S TO 60S IN THE MOUNTAINS AND
70S TO LOWER 80S IN THE MOUNTAIN VALLEYS. OVERNIGHT LOWS ARE
EXPECTED TO REMAIN ABOVE FREEZING IN THE MOUNTAINS. THIS WILL RESULT
IN RAPID SNOW MELT OF THE EXTENSIVE SNOWPACK. LOW LYING AREAS NEAR
RIVERS AND CREEKS MAY START EXPERIENCING FLOODING THE BEGINNING OF
JUNE.

THERE IS AN EXTREMELY HIGH SNOWPACK IN THE NORTH CENTRAL MOUNTAINS.
SNOWMELT IS ALREADY CAUSING HIGH FLOWS ON RIVERS AND CREEKS IN
GRAND...SUMMIT AND JACKSON COUNTIES. THE COLORADO RIVER...MUDDY AND
TROUBLESOME CREEKS IN GRAND COUNTY AND MICHIGAN AND ILLINOIS RIVERS
IN JACKSON COUNTY ARE AT OR NEAR BANKFULL.

DRAINAGES MOST SUSCEPTIBLE TO MINOR FLOODING DUE TO SNOWMELT INCLUDE
THE CACHE LA POUDRE...BIG THOMPSON AND LARAMIE RIVERS IN LARIMER
COUNTY...NORTH PLATTE...ILLINOIS AND MICHIGAN RIVERS IN JACKSON
COUNTY...BLUE RIVER IN SUMMIT COUNTY...COLORADO RIVER IN GRAND
COUNTY AND CLEAR CREEK IN CLEAR CREEK COUNTY.

the forecast I saw predicted abundant boofing by late next week across the state with a 60% chance of isolated beatdowns...beatdowns will become more common and widespread as we go into next weekend.
