Flood Warning For Flathead River

Posted: Updated:

KALISPELL -  A Flood warning for the Flathead River at Columbia Falls remains in effect due to recent high temperatures.

The National Weather Service issued the warning early Sunday morning. Weather Officials said flooding conditions are expected to last through this week because of melting mountain snowpack.

The new flood stage benchmark is now 13 feet, lowered a foot last week. As of Monday afternoon, the river sat at 13.39 feet.

NWS officials said they're expecting the river to crest Monday night or Tuesday morning.

NWS said the Flathead River that runs through West Glacier is expected to hit flood stage Monday night and stay there through Tuesday morning. They encourage farmers to move cattle and other livestock to higher ground.
