...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM FRIDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH
LATE SATURDAY NIGHT...

The Flood Watch continues for

* Flood Watch for Curry County and portions of Southern Coos
  County, Western Siskiyou County, and Western Josephine County.
  This includes Brookings and Cave Junction.

* From Friday afternoon through early Sunday morning.

* Periods of heavy rainfall and mountain snowmelt will create
  increased runoff. 3 to 6 inches of rainfall with localized
  amounts up to 10 inches in the mountains are expected in the
  Watch area. Snow levels will rise to 7000 feet through the
  duration of the heaviest rain. High rainfall rates near one half
  inch per hour are possible and there is potential for flooding
  in urban areas. Significant rises in small streams and creeks
  are expected, and flooding is possible. Significant rises in
  rivers will occur, but no main stem river flooding is currently
  expected.

* There is increased potential for flooding and debris flows in
  wildfire burn scar areas including the Chetco Bar and Klondike
  burn scars.

* Confidence is high that these areas will see periods of heavy
  rainfall, but confidence is only medium on exact locations and
  specific timing of heaviest rainfall. The band of heaviest
  precipitation will move back and forth along the coastline
  Friday afternoon through Sunday morning. Slight changes north or
  south to this band will lead to significant changes in observed
  rainfall and potential for flooding.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

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.

Landslides and debris flows are possible during this flood event.
People, structures and roads located below steep slopes, in
canyons and near the mouths of canyons may be at serious risk
from rapidly moving landslides.

...Flood Potential Outlook for significant river rises and snow melt
flooding on rivers and streams in the following counties in
California...Siskiyou and in Oregon...Curry...Josephine...

.Following the showers today and tonight, and the significant snowfall
above 4000 feet over the past few days, another storm system will impact
the area this weekend, with more rain and much higher snow levels. After
arriving Friday, the front is expected to stall across the area, placing
a band of moderate to heavy rain across Josephine, Curry, and Siskiyou
Counties for up to 48 hours. Total rainfall amounts through  Sunday
morning of 3 to 6 inches are expected in these areas, and localized
amounts of up to 10 inches are possible. Meanwhile, snow levels will
rise to above 7000 feet and remain there throughout the duration of
heaviest rain. Due to the new rainfall and expected snow melt,
significant rises on area rivers and streams is possible, and ponding
on area roadways is likely, but flooding is not expected at this time.

A flood potential outlook is issued when there is the potential for
significant rises or flooding along rivers and streams.

The exact scenario for flooding remains uncertain. This product will
be updated as necessary. Watches and warnings may be issued by the
National Weather Service if this situation worsens.
