...Flooding possible this weekend into early next week...

Heavy rain from thunderstorm on Saturday could result in flash
flooding in north-central Washington.  Additionally, the
unseasonably warm temperatures today and Saturday has increased high
mountain snow melt. This will cause  rises on several rivers and
streams in north central Washington and the northern Cascades.

A flood watch for the Stehekin River is in effect for late Saturday
night through Monday.

Flood Watch for the Kettle River near Ferry above Curlew is in
effect from late Sunday night to Wednesday evening.

Flood Watch for the Okanogan River near Tonasket is in effect from
Monday afternoon to late Thursday night.

All are currently near bankfull. Minor flooding is possible starting
as early as Saturday night and continuing into next week.

Cooler weather is expected next week along with a chance for light
showers. This should help slow the snow melt and allow river levels
to fall through the upcoming week.

Please continue to monitor river products for the latest forecasts
this week.
