Flood Watch issued in Northwestern Idaho

 

The National Weather Service has issued a Flood watch for Shoshone and Kootenai Counties, Idaho, USA.

Heavy showers and thunderstorms are expected to occur over the areas.

According to the Doppler Radar, a very active, moist and unstable air mass is expected to develop facilitating shower and thunderstorm activity.

Showers embedded with Thunderstorms could produce localized torrential rainfall flooding issues in urban and steep terrain areas.

Urban areas could see problems where storm drains are overtaken with water. Areas with steep terrain and creeks and streams could see sudden increases in water as well as mud/gravel flow across roads.

 

The flood watch remains in effect until this evening.
