HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK

High flows are expected along the upper Arkansas River due to snowmelt. Recent warm temperatures are producing rapid snowmelt over the higher terrain along the upper reaches of the Arkansas River, from the headwaters near Leadville, down to near Cañon City.

Water levels and flows are forecast to increase over the coming days. At this time, river levels are expected to remain below flood stage, however, swift flows and cold water temperatures will be dangerous. Stay away from fast-flowing water!

ROADS & HIGHWAYS
