... Flood Watch remains in effect for the north Oregon coast and Coast
Range... Portland/Vancouver Metro area... and southwest Washington
from the Willapa Hills to the South Washington Cascade foothills from
Tuesday morning through late Wednesday night...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of northwest Oregon and southwest Washington...
including the following areas... in northwest Oregon... Coast
Range of northwest Oregon... greater Portland Metro area...
lower Columbia and north Oregon coast. In southwest
Washington... Greater Vancouver area... I-5 corridor in Cowlitz
County... South Washington Cascade foothills... South Washington
coast and Willapa Hills.

* From Tuesday morning through late Wednesday night.

* Freezing levels will rise to 8000 feet tonight which will allow
snowmelt to begin in elevations above low level inversions where
colder air is trapped. Heavy rain will begin Tuesday and cause
rises on rivers and creeks draining the Coast Range... South
Washington Cascades... and Willapa Hills. The heavy rain will
likely cause urban flooding in the Portland/Vancouver Metro
areas as the rain will help melt the existing snowpack. Blocked
storm drains may also contribute to ponding of water on streets.

* Rainfall amounts through Thursday...
* Portland/Vancouver Metro area... 1 to 2 inches
* north Coast Range/Willapa Hills... 3 to 6 inches
* South Washington Cascades foothills... 3 to 6 inches
