jam formation which can cause quick and unpredictable fluctuations
in river levels. The river level forecasts are based on forecast
precipitation over the next 48 hours.

upgraded to a warning.  Report observed flooding to local emergency
services or law enforcement and request they pass this information on
to the National Weather Service.
