A flash flood watch has been issued for part of Southeast Idaho — including Pocatello, Blackfoot, American Falls, Soda Springs, Malad and other communities — from Thursday morning to Thursday evening due to forecast showers and thunderstorms, according to the National Weather Service.
Heavy rains could fall on recently saturated ground. Areas in steep terrain near recently burn-scarred lands may be especially susceptible to flash flooding, the Weather Service reports.
A flash flood watch means conditions could develop that lead to potentially dangerous flash floods. Area residents should monitor later forecasts and prepare to take action in the event of a flash flood warning.
