It's On!!

Sorry for the caps, I just copied and pasted this from noaa.

HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DENVER CO
627 PM MDT THU MAY 26 2011

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

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.

Man buzzards are on a roll lately. Duplicating, triplicating and quadruplicating the same posts. Admins gotta be banging their heads on the keyboards.
