But that doesn't mean the worst of the flooding is behind us.

The weekend's generally cool weather will be replaced with highs Tuesday that will approach 80 degrees.

Cooler weather is re-freezing the mountain snowpack, which has slowed the snowmelt rushing into the river.

Missoula County sheriff's spokesman Mel Holtz says the flooding Clark Fork River eroded dirt away from the base of a power pole, causing it to fall on Sunday. The Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks ordered the closure of the Reserve Street Bridge in Missoula to the Kona Bridge west of the city.

NorthWestern Energy had shut off power to the lines, but the lines themselves remain a danger to anyone using the river.

There's a public meeting scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday night at Hawthorne School, 2835 S. 3rd St. W in Missoula, for those who have been, or may be impacted by the floods.
