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 late Wednesday morning through
late Thursday night...

The Flood Watch is now in effect for

* portions of north Idaho and Washington, including the
following areas, in north Idaho, Coeur D'Alene area and
northern Panhandle. In Washington, northeast mountains,
Okanogan Valley, Spokane area, Waterville Plateau, and
Wenatchee area.

* From late Wednesday morning through late Thursday night

* moderate to heavy rain will arrive tonight and last through
Thursday night. It will be accompanied by above freezing
temperatures by late 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.
