...RAIN AND SNOWMELT WILL CAUSE SIGNIFICANT RISES ON CREEKS AND
STREAMS SATURDAY AND SUNDAY...

A warm and moist weather pattern will bring widespread rainfall
to Baker County Friday night through Saturday night. The
combination of rain and snowmelt will cause significant rises on
creeks and streams through the weekend. Additionally, there is a
threat of thunderstorms on Saturday which may produce heavy
downpours.

Some creeks, streams, and ditches may be at risk for minor
flooding, particularly where debris may clog drainages. Unpaved
rural roads may become muddy and impassable. Rock or mudslides may
occur in steep terrain, especially in areas burned by wildfire.

Additional rainfall amounts of .60 to 1.20 inches are expected
Friday night through Saturday night in the mountains of Baker
County, with the highest amounts in the Wallowa Mountains. Snow
levels will rise to around 9500 feet by Saturday, then lower to
around 5000 feet Saturday night.

People living near creeks, streams, and drainage ditches should
monitor the latest weather forecasts and be prepared for rising
water levels.
