...RAIN AND SNOWMELT WILL BRING THE POTENTIAL FOR MINOR FLOODING
ALONG RIVERS AND STREAMS EARLY THIS WEEK...

A series of weather systems will impact the region through early
this week and bring periods of rain to the area. Moderate to
heavy rainfall is possible through Monday, especially across
northern Baker County, and the West Central and Boise Mountains.
Snow levels as high as 8000 feet are expected.

The combination of rain and accelerating snowmelt will cause
sharp rises on rivers, creeks, and streams with minor flooding
possible. At this time, some of the rivers that could reach
bankfull or minor flood stage early next week include the the
Silvies River near Burns, the Weiser River near Weiser, the Middle
Fork Payette River at Crouch, and Mores Creek. A Flood Watch is in
effect for the Silvies River near Burns and the Weiser River near
Cambridge and Weiser.

Areas with deep snowpack such as the Long Valley, Round Valley,
and the Camas Prairie will see increased runoff as well, which
may cause ditches to overflow, leave water standing in fields, and
impact low-lying roads.

Rivers and streams will be running high and swift. Exact impacts
of the runoff will depend on how fast the snow melts and how much
rainfall occurs. Continue to monitor the forecast for the latest
details.
