Flash Flood Watch, *NOAA Issue Date: 8/22/2017 02:00:00 PM Heavy rain possible with storms in northern California and southwestern Oregon today may cause flooding over wildfire burn scars ... ... Flash Flood Watch in effect from 2 PM PDT this afternoon through this evening ... The National Weather Service in Medford has issued a: * Flash Flood Watch for portions of northern California and south central Oregon, including the following areas, in northern California, wildfire burn scars in south central Siskiyou county to include the wallow, fay, garden, and grizzly fires. In southwestern Oregon and northwestern Siskiyou county to include the miller complex of fires, and in Modoc county to include the Modoc July complex and parker 2 fire. * From 2 pm PDT this afternoon through this evening * Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are expected Some of these storms will be slow-moving and have heavy rain with them, and there is potential for flash flooding over recent wildfire burn scars. There is some uncertainty in terms of storm coverage due to heavy smoke limiting surface heating. Specifically, heavy smoke may prevent storms from forming in extreme western Siskiyou county. * Despite heavy rain occurring with some storms, lightning is expected outside of the storm cores, and abundant lightning on dry fuels will cause new fire starts. Precautionary/preparedness actions... A flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation. You should Monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should flash flood warnings be issued. 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.
