...Rain and snowmelt may cause localized flooding through Tuesday... 

...Minor flooding along the Malheur and Weiser Rivers on Tuesday... 

Mild and breezy conditions will accelerate snowmelt across lower 
elevations of southeast Oregon and southwest Idaho. This will 
continue the threat of localized flooding at sites where significant 
amounts of snow remain. Saturated soils and already high running 
creeks and rivers will further increase the flood potential. 

Potential impacts from flooding include city streets and parking 
lots, fields, small creeks and streams, and low-lying roads. Homes 
with poor drainage around the foundation may be at risk for basement 

The Weiser River and Malheur River will see continued rises through 
Tuesday, with minor flooding forecast. These rivers will need to be 
monitored closely.

Residents and travelers are encouraged to monitor this weather 
situation for updates, and possible watches or warnings.
