Special Statement
Statement as of 4:45 AM MDT on June 03, 2015

... Severe thunderstorms will likely impact some areas east of The
Divide this afternoon and evening...

The ingredients are coming together for severe thunderstorm
development this afternoon and evening. Natrona... Johnson... and much
of Fremont County... as well as the southern Big Horn basin will
have the best shot at seeing severe activity. The main hazards
will be large hail and damaging winds... but an isolated tornado is
possible. Torrential rainfall could also cause flash flooding... with
debris flows possible in steeply sloped areas. Thunderstorms could
linger past midnight especially over the Bighorn Mountains and
northern Johnson County. Stay abreast on the latest conditions... and
be prepared to take immediate action if a warning is issued for
your location.
