Flood watch in effect; here's how much rain we could get

Additional scattered thunderstorms were expected Monday afternoon into the evening across the entire county, according to an alert from the service. Storms tonight could be strong to severe after 9pm.

The Okanogan River near Tonasket is running at more than 18 feet, while flood stage is 15 feet.

Though the worst of the flooding is over, the weather service said, flooding is expected to continue throughout the night, especially near streams.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for portions of Maryland starting at 3 p.m. Tuesday and running until 1 a.m. Wednesday. They said up to 70 homes in that area were unreachable as a result to flooded roads.

A Flash Flood Watch means that there is the potential for flash flooding which can be life-threatening.

After storms earlier in the week, heavy rain forecasted for the region on Wednesday afternoon poses a risk of isolated flooding. Rapidly rising flood waters may quickly inundate roadways and areas of poor drainage.
