A flood watch is in effect for the Jefferson River near Three Forks. An influx of snowmelt runoff from the Big Hole and Boulder rivers will combine to raise levels on the Jefferson River. Flood stage may be reached late Monday night, possibly rising to major flood stage late Thursday or Friday. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.

For reference, the Jefferson River @ Three Forks crested at 9.38’ in 2011.  Current river levels can be obtained at:  http://gcem.us/River_Gauges.htm.
