(Pitchengine Communities) * (Riverton, Wyo.) - Warm temperatures are forecast through Saturday which means significant mountain snowmelt, according to the National Weather Service Forecast Office at Riverton Regional Airport. The snowmelt is expected to cause rises in area creeks and rivers, with those tributaries cresting in the Sunday and Monday timeframe, according to the NWS. "The locations of greatest concern are creeks and streams in the Big Wind and Little Wind River Basins," said a hazardous weather outlook posted this morning. Heavy rains that fell in the county two weeks ago resulted in serious flooding, especially in Hudson and areas around the Little Wind on the Wind River Reservation. According to a news release from Pat Kondas, a Red Cross Community Volunteer Leader earlier this week, the Red Cross Damage Assessment Teams determined that four homes were destroyed, 37 homes sustained major damage and 186 homes had minor damage. The Resource Center opened 195 client cases, assisting 607 individuals during the week it was open at the Fremont Center in Riverton.
