Warm rain could swell local streams

By Jayson Jacoby / The Baker City Herald

The National Weather Service has issued a "hydrologic outlook" for Baker County this week.

What this means, basically, is that a series of relatively warm, wet storms predicted to arrive starting late Tuesday will cause local streams to rise.

But the Weather Service is not expecting any rivers to reach flood stage.

"The combination of rain and snowmelt on top of frozen ground may cause minor flooding of small creeks, ditches and poor drainage areas," according to the Weather Service "City streets, county roads, highways and pastures may be impacted, especially where snow and ice block storm drains, gutters and side ditches."
