Valley rain and mountain snow showers will spread across northern

Rainfall intensity will increase on Thursday and continue Thursday
night. Many areas will receive a third to one half inch of
rainfall, with localized areas up to 1 inch. With snow levels
above 8500 feet much of this rain will be falling on snow which
will accelerate snow melt. In addition to the rain strong gusty
south winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 45 mph are expected on

Minor overland flooding is possible from the expected rain,
saturated soils from recent snowmelt, and the rapid snow melt
from the mid slopes of mountain ranges. Significant flooding is
not expected, but secondary dirt roads could see minor flooding
and become muddy and impassable. Also, any stream exiting the
higher terrain could see increased cold and swift flows. Use
caution and plan accordingly if recreating or traveling in the
backcountry or on rural roads.


Spotters are asked to report weather phenomena according to
standard operating procedure.
