RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - The National Weather Service says rapid snowmelt below 7,500 feet is possible across western and southwest Wyoming because of warm temperatures.

As a result, minor flooding could occur along creeks and streams and low-lying ranchland, especially on Saturday when the warmest temperatures of the week are expected.

Snowmelt and ice jams have been causing some flooding this week, especially near the confluence of the Hams Fork and Blacks Fork Rivers near the town of Granger in western Sweetwater County.

In addition, fire weather conditions will be elevated on Saturday in southeast Fremont, Natrona, and southern Johnson counties.
