DNRC Reports Mixed Bag Ahead This Summer

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

The Montana Department of Natural Resources (DNRC) has released its annual governor's report on the potential for drought and flooding for the state. And it looks like Montanans can expect a mixed bag this summer.

Much of the western, central and far eastern portions of the state have had significant rainfall for the spring, leading to excellent soil moisture conditions. However, the DNRC reports that despite the progress, the Yellowstone, Stillwater and Little Bighorn rivers are still expected to see at least some surface water shortages in the coming weeks. Also, many counties in south central Montana are forecasted to see low stream flows later this summer.

The report goes on to say low river and stream flows along with wildfires are not uncommon for Montana during the summer months of any given year.
