WEATHER DISCUSSION:

Say goodbye to the dry weather we've had the past few days. Showers will arrive tonight over the northwest interior, strait and along the north coast. The wet weather will spread into the Puget Sound area during the morning commute.

Tuesday and Wednesday will be very wet as a moist southwest flow pattern develops. We will see rain, heavy at times in the lowlands Tuesday and Wednesday. The Olympics and parts of the Cascades are looking at anywhere from 3-5"+ of rainfall. The lowlands may see .05"-3" between Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. We may see some river flooding on more flood prone rivers. 

Temperatures will be mild, warming back into the low to mid 50's. The snow level will rise as high as 5,000 to 7,000 feet by Tuesday afternoon.

Showers will decrease on Thursday with showers and sun breaks  through the weekend. Temperatures will be near normal with highs in the mid to upper 40's.
