Flood Watch remains, heavy rains moving East of the Olympics

OLYMPIA, Wash. – A Flood Watch remains in effect through this afternoon for portions of Western Washington including Grays Harbor, Clallam, Island, Jefferson, San Juan, Skagit, Whatcom, King, Kitsap, Lewis, Mason, Pierce, Snohomish, and Thurston counties.

 
Significant rainfall is expected especially east of the Olympics. Up to 2 inches of rain could fall today, with higher amounts in the central cascades.
 
Excessive rainfall could lead to urban and small stream flooding. National Weather Service Hydrologist Brent Bower tells us “Because the rainfall amounts could come in very short periods of time. So you might see street flooding, around homes, low lying areas, that type of thing.” Intense rainfall with thunderstorms could result in flash flooding and overwhelm storm drains, leading to flooded roads. mud or rock slides are also possible in steep mountainous terrain.
Significant rises can be expected on area rivers but flooding is unlikely.
 
Stay out of the ditches in Olympia, the national weather service also has an Urban and small stream flood advisory in effect for minor flooding of poor drainage areas in Eastern Thurston, Lewis, and Pierce counties until 8:45 this morning.

Flood Watch issued for Grays Harbor, heavy rain expected Thursday and Friday

MONTESANO, Wash. – The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a FLOOD WATCH for much of Western Washington, including Grays Harbor County from Thursday afternoon through Friday afternoon.

Significant rainfall is anticipated Thursday afternoon through Friday, with the heaviest rainfall expected from the Olympic range eastward. Potentially 1 to 2 inches of rain, with local amounts up to 4 Inches in the Cascades, could fall during this period. In addition, thunderstorms on Thursday could produce rain rates of an inch in one hour or less.

The potentially excessive rainfall could lead to Urban and Small Stream Flooding. A short period of intense rainfall on Thursday could cause Flash Flooding and overwhelm storm drains, leading to flooded roads. Mud or Rock Slides are also possible in steep mountainous terrain.

Expect significant rises on area rivers but flooding is unlikely.

   A FLOOD WATCH means conditions are favorable for flooding but flooding is NOT imminent or occurring. Monitor the latest forecasts from the National Weather Service and be ready to act quickly if flooding is observed or a warning is issued.
