  • Flood watch for entire Phila. region as rains keep coming

The Okanogan River near Tonasket is running at more than 18 feet, while flood stage is 15 feet. The warning continues through Friday night.

While flash flooding can not be ruled out, the primary concern is flooding of small streams and low-lying areas, the weather service said.

The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch in effect for Ocean City from 4 p.m. Tuesday through 2 a.m. Wednesday, according to a statement by Ocean City officials. A watch means that flooding is possible, whereas a warning means that flooding is happening or will happen momentarily.

Just 6 inches of fast-moving water can knock over and carry off an adult. Through Friday, a measure of atmospheric moisture from the ground up to cloud level, known as total precipitable water, is forecast to be near record levels (possibly near or exceeding two inches). If the water is moving, it can carry the auto away.

It is impossible to tell the exact depth of water covering a roadway or the condition of the road below the water.

National Weather Service rainfall forecast through Saturday afternoon.
