Mild weather has accelerated snowmelt at higher elevations, where a significant snowpack remains. This is resulting in local field flooding and rises along small streams and even mainstem rivers. Further snow melt and a return to a wetter weather pattern this weekend will increase runoff. Small creeks and streams emptying from higher terrain will run near bankfull, and potentially flood. Mainstream rivers including the Weiser, Payette and Malhuer will need to be monitored in response to the increased inflow from smaller creeks and streams. Those with interests near these streams and rivers will need to remain alert through the weekend. $$
