A slow moving low pressure center will bring pockets of heavy rain to parts of the Northwest. Widespread heavy rain is not anticipated, but passing showers and thunderstorms could be heavy at times. This could produce isolated flooding with localized 1" to 3" totals. Flash flood alerts continue in parts of Montana, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. The slow moving system has been producing showers and storms already today, and that will continue through the end of the week. With the rain falling and warmer temperatures, snowmelt will create extra water runoff. Low lying areas and burn scars are more susceptible to flooding. For WeatherNation: Meteorologist Mace Michaels
