Cascade... Fergus and Judith Basin. In north central Montana...
Blaine... Chouteau... eastern Glacier... eastern Pondera...
eastern Teton... hill... Liberty... northern Rocky Mountain
front... southern Rocky Mountain front and Toole.
* Until midnight MDT tonight
* showers and thunderstorms producing brief heavy rainfall will
initially develop over mountains this afternoon will spread
north across the remainder of the watch area late this
afternoon into this evening. Soils are still nearly saturated in
spots... and much of the anticipated rainfall will run
off... possibly causing localized flash flooding.
* Areas east of Interstate 15 are more susceptible than others
to flash flooding with this system. Soils there remain mostly
saturated... and that area will likely receive the greatest
amount of rainfall.
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.
