The Cheyenne Office of the National Weather Service is warning about the possibility of flooding in lowland areas of southeast Wyoming over the next few days, as warming temperatures continue to melt snow left by a major winter storm last week.

The service issued this statement on its website:

"Athough a warming trend is expected Wednesday and Thursday, there is an increasing risk of lowland flooding. Streams and creeks will continue to rise to near flood stage. In addition, rainfall and thunderstorms on Friday may increase this risk in areas of heavy rain. A Flood Advisory remains in effect for the northern Nebraska panhandle for rapid snow melt. Additional advisories or warnings are possible further west into southeast Wyoming by the end of the week."
