HYDROLOGIC STATEMENT
National Weather Service, Spokane, WA
1042 AM PDT WED OCT 22 2014

...A steady, soaking rain is streaming into the region from
the Pacific today. This rain will cause rises on area creeks,
streams and rivers...

The greatest amount of rain will fall over the Cascades, Okanogan and
Mountains of northeast Washington, where up to two inches of rain is
possible by Thursday morning.

The steeper slopes burned this past summer in Chelan and Okanogan
counties could experience some mud slides due to the upcoming period
of steady rainfall. Large flash floods or debris flows are not
expected since rain intensity will be low throughout the event. If
you notice creeks that are backing up behind plugged culverts or
debris dams and are coming out of their banks...please call your
local emergency management officials or the National Weather Service
so an alert message can be widely distributed.

Another round of rain is anticipated toward the beginning of next
week which may affect the Cascade area as well.
