POPLAR, Mont. (AP) - Flood warnings are in effect in northeastern Montana as winter snow pack continues to melt.

The National Weather Service says flooding occurred along the West and Middle Forks of the Poplar River on Friday and that water will work its way downstream toward Poplar over the weekend.

It says melting snow in the Little and Big Snowy Mountains south of Lewiston will also raise the water level in Flatwillow Creek over the weekend.

Overnight temperatures will still be cold enough to freeze water on roadways so drivers are urged to watch out for possible slick spots.
