* Numerous county roads in Benton and Franklin Counties remained
  closed due earlier flooding and washouts.  The heavy rain that
  caused the rapid snowmelt and runoff has moved out of the area,
  but some snowmelt is still expected overnight.  Most areas have
  saturated ground with the water slow to drain away.

Mainly dry conditions are expected Wednesday and Thursday and will
allow water to drain away.  Pay attention to road closures as the
road beds may have eroded and become unstable.
