* WHEN...From late tonight through Wednesday morning.

* IMPACTS...Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers,
  creeks, streams, other low-lying areas and flood-prone locations.
  Creeks and streams may rise out of their banks. Historically, we
  note possible isolated landslides can occur from similar
  atmospheric conditions in areas of steep terrain. Annual return
  intervals continue to show a 10 to 25 year returns for Tuesday
  into Wednesday.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...
  - A series of warm fronts will approach the area for the start
    of the week bringing more rain to the panhandle. These warm
    fronts will bring moisture from an atmospheric river to the
    area while also warming temperatures and raising snow levels.
    With the rain and warming temperatures, snow melt is expected
    across the panhandle for lower elevation basins which will
    add to the significant rain falling across the panhandle.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible Flood
Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared
to take action should flooding develop.

Stay tuned to further developments by listening to your local radio,
television, or NOAA Weather Radio for further information.
