Flood Advisory in Effect

At approximately 12 noon, the National Weather Service Office in Billings NWS issued a flood advisory for the Sheridan area.  The advisory encompasses areas/foothills west and south of Sheridan and includes the city. The advisory is precautionary and stems from warm temperatures and existing snow cover in the foothills and low-lying areas of the county. Roads in low-lying areas may be prone to over-topping as a result of accelerated snow melt as warm temperatures are expected into Sunday.
