...FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM LATE TONIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY
AFTERNOON...

* WHAT...Flooding caused by excessive rainfall is possible.

* WHERE...Portions of northwest and west central Washington,
  including the following counties, in northwest Washington, Grays
  Harbor and Mason. In west central Washington, King, Lewis, Pierce
  and Thurston.

* WHEN...From late tonight through Thursday afternoon.

* IMPACTS...Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers,
  creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...
  - A rising snow level, moderate to heavy rain, and to a lesser
    degree low- to mid-elevation snowmelt will potentially
    produce enough runoff to cause minor flooding of some streams
    and rivers. The Olympics and Cascades could see 3 to 5 inches
    of rain. The snow level will rise Wednesday to 4500 feet.
    Based on the degree of snow level changes, it`s relation to
    precipitation, and the amount of precipitation and snowmelt
    makes for a fair amount of uncertainty on what, if any,
    rivers will flood. The exception is the Skokomish River which
    is highly likely to exceed flood stage and possibly Moderate
    Flood.

* WHAT...Flooding caused by rain, snowmelt and ice jams are possible.

* WHERE...Portions of Central Highlands, Far Eastern, North Woods,
  and Penobscot Valley Maine, including the following areas, in
  Central Highlands Maine, Central Piscataquis, Northern Penobscot
  and Southern Piscataquis. In Far Eastern Maine, Northern
  Washington and Southeast Aroostook. In North Woods Maine, Northern
  Piscataquis. In Penobscot Valley Maine, Central Penobscot.

* WHEN...From Wednesday afternoon through Thursday afternoon.

* IMPACTS...Excessive runoff from rain and snowmelt may result in
  flooding of creeks, streams and low lying areas. Increased flows
  from runoff and rain will break up the ice on area rivers,
  increasing the risk for ice jam flooding.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...
  - Rainfall from 1 to 1.5 inches is expected in the Central
    Highlands over to southern Aroostook. Rain plus added
    snowmelt from the existing snowpack will increase runoff in
    these areas and likely cause creeks and streams to rise out
    of their banks.

  are possible.

  Androscoggin, Central Somerset, Coastal Waldo, Interior Cumberland

  Oxford and Southern Somerset and northern New Hampshire, including
  the following areas, Northern Carroll, Northern Grafton and
  Southern Coos.

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

* IMPACTS...The combined runoff from rain and snowmelt will cause
  high flows on area streams and small rivers. The increased flows
  will break up ice
  increasing the risk of ice jam flooding. For coastal areas the
  risk of urban and low lying areal flooding is likely.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...
  - Rainfall of 0.5 to 1.5 inches is expected, highest along the
    Midcoast and the mountains. The addition of snowmelt in the
    higher terrain could result in small stream flooding. The
    larger rivers may approach bankfull, but are not expected to
    flood at this time.

  flooded.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...
  - Rainfall amounts of 0.5 to 1.25 inches, locally higher in
    thunderstorms, combined with 1 to 2.5 inches of snowmelt from
    a primed snowpack will lead to elevated risk of river and
    tributary flooding. The main areas of concern remain the Mad

    Ausable Forks (ASFN6), and Otter Creek at Center Rutland
    (CENV1).
