Expires 7:00 PM EST on November 23, 2017


... Flood Watch remains in effect from this afternoon through

including the following counties, in northwest Washington,
Clallam, Grays Harbor, Jefferson, Mason, Skagit, and Whatcom.
In west central Washington, King, Lewis, Pierce, Snohomish,
and Thurston.

* From this afternoon through Thursday afternoon

* a warm front and the plume of subtropical moisture with it will
bring 2 to 5.5 inches of rain to the Olympics and Mount Rainier
today and tonight, and 1 to 4 inches of rain to the Cascades
north of Mount Rainier. The snow level will be near 8000 feet. A
second frontal system will bring another 1 to 4 inches on
Wednesday night and Thursday, with the snow level falling from
7000 feet to 4000 feet as the system moves through.

* The two systems in close succession presents a threat of
flooding on rivers in western Washington. Flooding could begin
tonight or Wednesday. It looks like the threat is for a
relatively minor flooding episode.

* Models show several rivers cresting near or just above flood
stage including the skokomish, Cowlitz, Nisqually, white,
Snoqualmie, stillaguamish, Skagit, and Nooksack. However, this
doesn't mean that the possibility of flooding is limited to
these rivers.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
