California,

Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 9:42 PM PST on February 18, 2017

Expires 5:00 PM EST on February 21, 2017


... Flood Watch now in effect from late Sunday night through
Tuesday afternoon...

The Flood Watch is now in effect for

* a portion of northwest California, including the following
areas, coastal del norte, del norte interior, Mendocino coast,
northeastern Mendocino interior, northern Humboldt coast,
northern Humboldt interior, northwestern Mendocino interior,
southeastern Mendocino interior, southern Humboldt interior,
southern Trinity, southwestern Humboldt, and southwestern
Mendocino interior.

* From late Sunday night through Tuesday afternoon

* rainfall amounts from 2 to 4 inches are forecast to occur Sunday
night through Tuesday afternoon. Locally higher amounts are
possible, particularly in south facing mountainous terrain.

* Primary impacts will be localized ponding of water on low
lying roadways with poor drainage, as well as rising water
levels for area streams and rivers. Flooding near the coast
will be enhanced during high tide. In addition, heavy rain
combined with gusty winds will increase the potential for rock
and mud slides on mountain roads.

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.
