  Idaho, Big and Little Wood River Region, Lost
  River/Pahsimeroi, and Sawtooth Mountains. In eastern Idaho,

  possible. Areas near creeks and streams may be especially
  vulnerable to runoff flooding. Periods of rain below 6500 feet
  is expected tonight through Saturday morning as well as Sunday
  night and Monday which will exacerbate runoff issues in the
  lower elevations.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
