...Lowland Flooding Possible For Portions of the Snake Plain,
Magic Valley and Southern Highland Valleys

Warm temperatures continue across much of eastern Idaho. So far,
rain on snow hasn`t been significant enough to increase the risk
of flooding. However, a front moves through this evening and
tonight which could bring light to moderate rain to portions of
the Magic Valley, Lower Snake Plain and valleys across southern
Cassia, Oneida, Caribou and Franklin Counties. The combination of
snowmelt and potential for rain on snow could increase flooding
in these areas. Be on the look out for sheet flooding and ponding
on road surfaces.

To minimize your risk of flooding, make sure you keep drains open.
Also you can create runoff ditches to direct flowing water. To
prevent basement flooding, remove snow from around your
foundation.
