NWS issues flood watch for central Montana

Rivers and lakes reaching flood stage in inland Northwest

Up to two inches of rain had already fallen and an additional one to two inches of rain were possible within the next one to two hours.

While flash flooding can not be ruled out, the primary concern is flooding of small streams and low-lying areas, the weather service said.

Flood warnings mostly focused in western Loudoun and Frederick counties, where numerous streams have overflowed, resulting in some road closures.

The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for the Pittsburgh region starting Tuesday afternoon, when the first of several strong rainstorms is expected to rapidly roll through.

Meteorologist Ryan Leach said that the river will be at flood stage for weeks to come. Forecasters expect an overall rainfall total of three to five inches.

The Weather Service says rising temperatures this week will increase snowmelt and runoff. A flood watch means there is a potential for flooding base on current forecasts. Flash flooding can impact parts of the island that don't typically experience tidal flooding.

Hughes said Public Works prepares its fleet with road closing signs, barricades and other equipment so they will be ready to respond if there are flooding issues. The forecast is for minor flooding at high tide for both the District's Southwest Waterfront and in Alexandria.
