OUTLOOK: Rainfall picking up as we move into the midweek time frame. We have a series of storms that will keep us damp through the rest of the week and into this weekend.
The first of storms arriving overnight and into Wednesday. This rain will also bring some wind with it, becoming pretty gusty along the coast and within Puget Sound.
I think the big story will be how much rain we get. It looks like our 7 day rain total will be between 1-3 inches on average which could cause problems for our city drains. All these beautiful fall leaves will likely get blown off with these storms, which may cause minor urban flooding.
This weekend we'll cool down as a new storm arrives from the Northwest which will drop our snow levels down to 4000 feet.
