* Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for...
northwestern Grant County in northeastern Oregon...
south central Morrow County in northeastern Oregon...

ochoco-John Day Highlands. In northeast Oregon... Grande Ronde

rates of one half to one inch of rain per hour with some storms.
This will threaten portions of central and northeast Oregon with
flash flooding or debris flows.

* Expect standing water along roadways where heavy rain from

steep terrain. Sharp rises along river and streams are also
possible.
