Flood watch in effect through Wednesday

April 9, 2019

A flood watch is in effect for Jackson Hole late Monday night through midday Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.

That means flooding is possible and residents should be prepared.

Forecasters are saying the area could see 0.77 inches of rain over the next three days.

“That’s going to fall, obviously, onto snow that’s been there for a while,” Riverton warning coordination meteorologist Tim Troutman said on a Monday afternoon conference call. “There’s going to be some potential for some rain-on-snow issues, definitely in the Jackson and Star Valley regions.”

Snow will be mostly confined to the mountains, but the rain will likely change over to snow starting late Tuesday evening, according to the Weather Service. Snowflakes are in the forecast the rest of the week.
