National Weather Service issues flood watch for Baker County

By Jayson Jacoby, The Baker City Herald

The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch for Baker County.

The watch, which means there is the potential for local flooding but none has been reported, is in effect through Saturday afternoon.

A forecast for heavy rain over the next two days, combined with melting snow and frozen ground that can't absorb all the moisture, could result in minor flooding of creeks, ditches and areas with poor drainage, according to the National Weather Service.
