NCW — A flood watch is in effect for parts of Chelan and Okanogan counties.

Moderate to heavy rains are expected over wildfire burn scars from late Wednesday night to late Thursday night in the two counties, according to an alert from the National Weather Service.

Rainfall in excess of one inch will increase chances for mud and rock slides in areas burned by the Twentyfive Mile Fire north of Chelan and the Cedar Creek and Cub Creek 2 fires outside Winthrop, the alert said.

Individuals living within these areas should be prepared to take action if flooding develops, the alert advised.
