...RAIN AND SNOWMELT WILL RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT RISES ON RIVERS
AND STREAMS THIS WEEKEND...

Another in the series of weather system will move across the area
this weekend with high snow levels. The combination of rain and
snowmelt will cause significant rises on rivers and streams,
persisting through at least early next week.

Significant within bank rises can be expected, with some
locations reaching bankfull stages this weekend. Bankfull
conditions will occur on the Yakima, Naches and Grande Ronde
rivers. No rivers are forecast to reach flood stage at this time.
However, minor flooding and ponding of water may occur along
small streams, creeks, and ditches, particularly where snow, ice,
or debris may clog drainages. Unpaved rural roads may become muddy
and impassable. Rock or mud slides may occur in steep terrain.

People living near rivers and streams should monitor the latest
weather forecasts and be prepared for rising water levels.
