Weather service issues flash flood watch for eastern Idaho
POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) - The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for central and eastern Idaho. The weather service says a subtropical airmass is bringing moist, unstable air from Nevada and Utah into Idaho, and that will likely cause thunderstorms by tomorrow afternoon. Weather service officials say those expected storms could produce as much as one inch of rain an hour, and that could cause flash flooding in the region. The watch begins tomorrow at noon and is in effect until midnight. It includes 18 counties: Bannock, Bear Lake, Bingham, Blaine, Bonneville, Butte, Caribou, Cassia, Clark, Franklin, Fremont, Jefferson, Lincoln, Madison, Minidoka, Oneida, Power and Teton counties. The weather service says people in those counties should be prepared for sudden rises in small creeks and streams, and that people should never attempt to drive on flooded roadways.
