The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch for the southern Blue Mountains in Grant County.

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts, according to information from the National Weather Service.

A strong, warm weather system will continue to move through the region Wednesday night and Thursday with snow levels rising to 8,000 feet with periods of rain.

There may be ponding water in low-lying areas with poor drainage or frozen ground, as well as sharp rising on small streams and creeks. Ice jams are also possible. Major rivers may also see strong rises.

The National Weather Service recommends people living in areas prone to flooding be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
