Get ready for another soaker this week that could bring urban flooding like last week. The Central Puget Sound region could receive two inches of rain between Thursday and Friday.

A flood watch is in effect from Thursday afternoon through Friday afternoon for most of Western Washington.

KING 5 Meteorologist Jeff Renner says some local flooding will be possible due to heavy rainfall, mainly in urban or low lying areas.

This threat will be greatest during the afternoon to evening hours, he said.

Unstable air will bring a chance of thunderstorms for the Cascades and the lowlands. Thunderstorms on Thursday could produce an inch of rain in one hour.

Highs Thursday will be in the low-to-mid 70s.

The wettest spots will be along the coast and in the Cascades, said Renner. However, 24-hour rain totals from Thursday afternoon through Friday afternoon could exceed 2 inches over central Puget Sound. The Cascade Range could see higher amounts.

Summer weather returns Saturday through Monday, with mostly sunny skies likely Sunday into at least the early part of next week with high temperatures warming back into the upper 70s to low 80s.
