SPOKANE — The National Weather Service is forecasting flash flood conditions in fire-affected areas of NCW tonight, and residents of Entiat, Roaring Creek Canyon and Swakane Canyon were urged to “move to higher ground now.”

The NWS alert for thunderstorm sctivity over the Mills Canyon Fire area, issued at 6:45 p.m., includes a flash flood warning for those areas until until 9:45 p.m.

The warning came as storms developed along the Chelan and Kittitas County boundary and moved toward Entiat and Twentyfive Mile Creek. Once formed, the storms remained nearly stationary, forecasters said in an alert issued at 7:11 p.m.

Scattered storms were expected to pelt western Okanogan County this evening, with one storm caught on radar hovering at the headwaters of the Methow River and producing heavy rain. That precipated a similar flash flood warning for the Foggy Dew Campground and the towns of Methow and Carlton, on the books until 11:30 p.m. Small hail, heavy downpours and winds up to 45 mph could be in the mix for those storms.
