...Rain and snowmelt may cause localized flooding over the next
several days...
...Strong rises expected on the Malheur and Weiser Rivers through

A moist weather pattern and seasonably warm temperatures will
bring the threat of localized flooding to portions of southwest
Idaho and southeast Oregon through the early next week. Areas where
significant amounts of low-elevation snow remain will be most
susceptible to flooding. Potential flood impacts include city
streets and parking lots, fields, small creeks and streams, and low-
lying roads. Homes with poor drainage around the foundation may be
at risk for basement flooding.

Additional rainfall totals of .50 to .75 inches are expected for
Saturday night through Tuesday across lower valleys, though the
Weiser Basin could see totals of around one inch of liquid.
Saturated soils and water levels already elevated on some creeks and
rivers will increase the flood potential.

Lower elevation rivers such as the Weiser River and Malheur
River will experience strong rises, and may reach minor flood stage
early next week. These rivers will need to be monitored closely.

Residents and travelers are encouraged to monitor this weather
situation for updates, and possible watches or warnings.
