Washington, Upper Columbia Basin

Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 5:51 AM PST on January 18, 2017

Expires 9:00 AM EST on January 20, 2017


... Flood Watch remains in effect through late Thursday night...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of Idaho and Washington, including the following
areas, in Idaho, central Panhandle mountains, Idaho Palouse,
Lewis and southern Nez Perce counties, and Lewiston area. In
Washington, lower Garfield and Asotin counties, northeast Blue
Mountains, upper Columbia Basin, and Washington Palouse.

* Through late Thursday night

* a round of moderate precipitation will occur this morning.
Precipitation will fall in the form of rain over southeast
Washington, the Lewiston area, and the Camas Prairie. Rain today
will likely cause our low elevation snow pack to become
increasingly wet and slushy.

* Most likely impacts from this event include flooded roads and
urban areas where ditches and storm drains are clogged with
snow, ponding water in low lying areas with poor drainage or
frozen ground, sharp rises on small creeks and streams, and
ice jams on creeks and rivers.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means that flooding is possible but not imminent in
the watch area. You should monitor forecasts, be alert for
possible flood warnings, and maintain awareness of local
conditions. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop. Report any ice
jams to local emergency management or law enforcement.
