Most of area under flood watch for the weekend


(WOWK) — As of Friday evening, the majority of the WOWK viewing area is under an areal flood watch. That term just means that a large area is under a flood watch.

Key factors coming into play for the risk of flooding in the region:

  • 2 to 4 inches of rain possible across the region Friday through Monday morning
  • Already soaked soil
  • Melting snow pack in the mountains
  • Convective storms, or thunderstorms, produce heavier local rates of rainfall and runoff
Model output for rainfall across the weekend as of 7 p.m. Friday

Remember, if you come across a place where water is moving over and covering the road, don’t drive into that area.
