Flood warnings are posted for minor flooding on the Skokomish and Stillaguamish rivers.

Large waves will batter the Coast into early Sunday, making for dangerous surf conditions, and with minor coastal flooding possible.

The air mass was unstable enough to set off some thundershowers. Winds peaked Saturday afternoon, and snow levels are expected to drop to 2000-2500 feet into early Sunday.

Rain, wind and mountain snow will still be factors on Sunday. Because the mountain snowfall initially will be heavy, and because of the speed of accumulations and strong winds, the avalanche hazard will rise quickly.

The Cascades could see up to 2 feet of snow through Sunday, and along with the gusty winds, could make travel difficult.

There may be temporary closures of mountain passes for avalanche control work late Sunday and early Sunday.
