    * Forecast... flood stage may be reached late tonight, then
      continue to rise through Thursday evening.

      Forks. At 8.5 feet... County roads and bridges may have
      water flowing over them. Several homes could flood.

* Water levels on the Jefferson river were steady Sunday night,
but it may rise through this week, as warm temperatures help
increase snowmelt out of the mountains. Also, runoff from
thunderstorms each day this week will likely keep rivers and
creeks running high and fast.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
