thunderstorms with very heavy rainfall rates. Thunderstorms
will continue to be possible over the area into the evening

* Heavy rainfall may lead to flash flooding or mud and debris
flows. The areas of greatest concern will be in and around the
recent burn scars from wildfires in 2012... 2013... and so far
through 2014. This includes the following burn scars...

The Carlton complex fire affecting residents... businesses... and
motorists in the Methow Valley and portions of the Okanogan
Valley. This includes motorists on US Highway 97 from Chelan to
Brewster and State Highway 153 from Pateros to Twisp.

The Mills canyon fire affecting residents and motorists in Mills
Canyon and other nearby canyons in the Entiat River Valley... as
well as motorists below the burned areas on Entiat River Road and
U.S. Highway 97a.

The Lone Mountain fire in the Stehekin River valley affecting
residents and recreationists in and below Boulder Creek and those
on the Stehekin River Road below the Boulder Creek drainage.

and Eagle Creek Road.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding or debris flows. It takes as little as ten
minutes of heavy rain to cause flash flooding and debris flows in
and below areas affected by wildfires. Rain runs off almost
instantly from burned soils... causing creeks and drainages to
flood at a much faster rate than normal. Soils in a burn scar can
also become unstable when it rains... sometimes resulting in
debris flows and Falling Rock.

Rushing water and debris... including trees and rocks... can damage
or destroy culverts... bridges... roads... and buildings. Flash
flooding and debris flow paths are unpredictable and can affect
locations that are miles away from a burned area.
