DOUGLAS, Wyoming — The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for the Thunder Basin National Grassland in eastern Wyoming, where more heavy rains are forecast over the next few days.
Road conditions on the grassland remain poor following severe storms that caused flooding and road washouts last week. Continuing wet weather since then means the ground remains saturated.
Federal land managers say visitors should be aware of the flooding potential, the overall poor condition of many roads. They say there's heavy equipment on some roads and crossing the Cheyenne River and Antelope Creek is not advisable due to high water.
Anyone heading into the grassland should be prepared for wet and exceedingly muddy conditions.
