...Higher flows occurring along the Dolores River...

The combination of snowmelt and rainfall earlier today has pushed
river levels up along many reaches of the Dolores River in
Montrose and San Miguel Counties this evening. The river has not
reached bankfull conditions, and a steady decline is expected 
overnight. However additional rainfall and runoff over the next 24
hours may lead to additional actions being taken.
