Another wet and warm storm system will push into western Washington on Saturday. Rain may be heavy at times. The Olympics and Cascades could see another 2 to 4 inches of rain by Sunday morning. That will increase the threat of flooding on some of the rivers in the area. Once again mudslides could be an issue as well as standing water on the roadways Saturday night. Look for increasing winds as well. The coast could see gusts to near 50 mph, while the northwest interior could top out at near 45 mph. It appears the Puget Sound area could see gusts as high as 35 mph through Saturday night.
The steady, heavy rain should turn to off and on showers on Sunday with some afternoon sunbreaks and diminishing winds. Showers should end on Monday and we may see a stretch of dry days Tuesday through Thursday with mild temperatures.
A Flood Watch has been posted for parts of western Washington this weekend. A Flood Warning is still in effect for the Skokomish river in Mason County for minor flooding. A Phase 2 Flood Alert remains in effect for the Green river upstream of Auburn for minor flooding.
