Officials with the National Weather Service say snowmelt may cause flooding in several areas of Wyoming this spring.

Jim Fahey, an NWS hydrologist based out Riverton, says areas of the state with moderate-to-high flooding potential include headwater streams along the central and southern Big Horn Mountains, along the Encampment River near Encampment and Riverside, and along the North Platte River near Saratoga.

Additional areas with moderate-to-high flooding potential include the Wind River from Crowheart to Riverton and along the north fork of the Shoshone River near Wapiti and the south fork the Shoshone River near Valley.

Moderate-to-high flooding potential also exists along the Green River near LaBarge. Moderate flooding potential exists along Clear Creek near Buffalo, along the Little Goose Creek and Big Goose Creek near Sheridan, along the Salt River and its tributary streams and along multiple streams in the Upper Green River Basin.

Fahey says the statewide mountain snowpack remains above average at 130 percent.
