Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 3:10 AM MDT Mar. 24, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch remains in effect through this afternoon...

The Flood Watch continues for

* the southern Wood River Valley, Wood River foothills, Shoshone
Lava Beds, Arco and Mud Lake deserts, Lost River valleys, upper
snake plain, and Beaverhead Lemhi Highlands, including but not
limited to Shoshone, Richfield, Carey, Picabo, Bellevue, Hailey,
Craters of the Moon, Arco, MacKay, Idaho National laboratory,
Howe, Mud Lake, Idaho Falls, Ammon, Roberts, Rigby, Ririe,
Rexburg, St. Anthony, and DuBois.

* Through this afternoon.

* Another round of rain and snow is moving into the watch area
from the south and west, and will continue through this
afternoon from the Arco desert westward, and into this evening
to the north and east. An additional two tenths to one quarter
of an inch of liquid equivalent is expected to fall today across
the Shoshone Lava Beds and Wood River Valley, with generally one
tenth of an inch across the rest of the watch area northeast of
Craters of the Moon. Thus, runoff due to falling precipitation
and snow melt will continue. Reports of flooding have been very
minor and isolated so far, but the threat continues with the
additional precipitation today.

* Ponding of water in low lying areas, sheet and field flooding,
and basement flooding will remain possible. Water may encroach
onto some roads. In addition, small streams and creeks may reach
bankfull, and rises are likely on larger rivers.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is the potential for flooding based on
current forecasts. You should continue to monitor the latest
forecasts and be alert for possible flood advisories or flood
warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

If you observe flooding, please report your observations to the
National Weather Service in Pocatello via phone, E-mail,
facebook, or twitter, when you can do so safely.
