Monday, our news guy, Peter Christian, reported:

According to the National Weather Service, a flood watch is issued when rivers and streams are nearing their banks and residents close by need to begin preparing for a flood…a flood warning is issued when flooding is imminent and it may be too late for precautions. According to Dan Zumpf, chief forecaster for the National Weather Service in Missoula..a flood watch is now in effect for the Clark Fork river above Missoula and for the Fisher river near Libby, while a flood warning is in effect for the Yaak river in Northwest Montana and the Thompson river near Thompson Falls. My interview with Mr. Zumpf is attached.
