Local News:

Yesterday’s late afternoon downpour caused many areas of street flooding some power outages. In addition, the quick-hitting rainstorm caused the Rock Springs Police Department to issue a no unnecessary travel order for a while, but that order was lifted about an hour later. Official rain totals from yesterday’s storm from the National Weather Service will be available later this morning.



It appears rainy weather could stay around a while.

The forecast for today is for partly sunny skies with a 30% chance of isolated, then scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and tonight.  We will cool to a high of 86 today. Friday’s chance of rain increases to 80%, with another 80% chance on Saturday and a 70% chance on Sunday with highs in the upper 70 this weekend.

**** No new information has been received on the Soda Lake Fire burning just south of Soda Lake in the South Cottonwood Creek drainage west of Big Piney.
