HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE KOTX
640 AM PDT TUE MAY 26 2015

WAZ038-041>043-271345-
OKANOGAN HIGHLANDS-WENATCHEE AREA-EAST SLOPES NORTHERN CASCADES-
OKANOGAN VALLEY-
640 AM PDT TUE MAY 26 2015

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of North Central
Washington.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

A low pressure system will produce isolated to scattered showers
with embedded thunderstorms late this morning into the afternoon.
Thunderstorms will be slow moving and contain heavy downpours.
There is the potential for rainfall intensity to be high enough to
produce flash flooding or debris flows, mainly in steep terrain
and in the proximity of recent burn scars from the 2013 and 2014
fire seasons.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY

Low pressure will begin to pull away from the region on Wednesday,
but the atmosphere will remain unstable enough for afternoon
thunderstorms to develop over the higher terrain. Slow moving
thunderstorms with heavy rainfall will be the primary hazard, but
impact potential is expected to be progressively less each day
later in the week.
