*********************************************************************
This Flood Watch is based on limited confidence associated with
routed flows from upstream.

This Flood Watch is based on observed and predicted rainfall over
the next 48 hours.

This Flood Watch is based on limited confidence with the forecast
due to ice jam conditions. Conditions are favorable for ice jams,
but how high the river level will get remains uncertain.

At this time there is limited confidence associated with rainfall
amounts and the location of predicted rainfall.

If rainfall in the basin is less than predicted, the forecast river
stage may not be reached. Conversely, if rainfall is more than
predicted the river may crest higher.

!!!!END OF EDITED SECTION. DELETE EVERYTHING BETWEEN THE STARS!!!!
**********************************************************************

As the forecast becomes more certain, this watch will either be
upgraded to a warning or cancelled.
