Flash flood watch re-instituted for Baker County

The National Weather Service in Boise has re-instituted a flash flood watch for Baker County.

The watch is in effect from 11 a.m. PDT today through Thursday afternoon.

A flash flood watch was in effect Monday, but it was canceled on Tuesday afternoon.

A flash flood watch does not mean flash floods are imminent or even likely, but rather that flooding is possible based on the weather forecast.

The flash flood watch is prompted by unusually moist air that's moving north from California. This moist air increases the chance for thunderstorms that could spawn torrential downpours, according to the Weather Service.

The flood risk is higher in areas burned by wildfires this summer.

If storms approach Baker County the Weather Service might upgrade the flash flood watch to a warning, which means flooding is more likely.
