HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PENDLETON OR
847 AM PST SAT MAR 8 2014

...WARM TEMPERATURES AND HEAVY RAINFALL SUNDAY AND MONDAY...

A WEATHER SYSTEM WILL MOVE INTO THE REGION OVERNIGHT AND PERSIST
THROUGH MONDAY. THIS SYSTEM HAS TAPPED INTO SUBTROPICAL MOISTURE
ORIGINATING IN THE HAWAII AREA. THE POTENTIAL IS THERE FOR ONE TO
THREE INCHES OF RAINFALL WHICH WILL CAUSE RAPID RISES ON SMALL
STREAMS WHICH FEED INTO THE LARGE RIVERS.

THE MAIN CONCERN WILL BE THE STREAM AND RIVERS ALONG THE EAST
SLOPES OF THE CASCADES AND THOSE COMING OUT OF THE BLUE MOUNTAINS.
AT THIS POINT NO FLOODING IS EXPECTED ON THE MAIN LARGE RIVERS
BUT SOME ARE EXPECTED TO CLIMB BACK TO BANKFULL OR HIGHER BY
MONDAY.

THOSE LIVING NEAR SMALL STREAM...CREEKS OR RIVERS THAT ARE PRONE
TO FLOODING SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR RAPID RISES AND POSSIBLE
FLOODING.
