Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 7:42 PM PST on January 17, 2017

Expires 9:00 AM EST on January 20, 2017


... Flood Watch now in effect from 7 am PST Wednesday through late
Thursday night...

The Flood Watch is now in effect 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, Moses Lake
area, northeast Blue Mountains, upper Columbia Basin, and
Washington Palouse.

* From early Wednesday through late Thursday night

* moderate to heavy rain will develop tonight and continue through
Thursday night, and will be accompanied by above freezing
temperatures by Wednesday morning. With widespread mid and low
elevation snow, the resulting runoff from rainfall and snowmelt
may be enough to cause localized flooding issues. Flooding may
be exacerbated in areas where storm drains and ditches are clogged
with snow and ice or where soils are frozen. Ice jams on frozen
rivers and creeks are also a possibility with this event.

* 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.
