The  snow pack throughout Western Montana is higher than it has been in more than a decade which means a high potential for floods. On Thursday the snow pack was 140% of average, in the upper Clark Fork area.  Hydrologist with the National Weather Service, Ray Nickless says the highest potential for flooding is in creeks in the Mission Mountains in Lake County, the Little Bitterroot River and Thompson River in Sanders County, Ashley Creek in Flathead County and the Fisher River in Lincoln County . Nickless says  Western Montana will reach the flood stage soon  as we see temperatures increase.

 Nickless suggests sandbagging areas that have been vulnerable to flooding in the past, now.
