The National Weather Service warned the heavy rainfall this month has made mudslides possible. We've already seen one minor mudslide in Seattle's Magnolia neighborhood earlier Monday and with more wet weather on the way, we could see more mudslides in other areas around Western Washington.

The Skokomish River in Mason County remains under a flood warning, but it is expected to recede over the next couple of days. The National Weather Service said all other flood watches and warnings have ended.
