Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 3:58 PM PDT on October 19, 2017

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on October 22, 2017


... Flood Watch in effect from Saturday afternoon through Sunday
afternoon...

The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a

* Flood Watch for portions of northwest Washington and west
central Washington, including the following counties, in
northwest Washington, Clallam, Grays Harbor, Jefferson,
Kitsap, Mason, Skagit, and Whatcom. In west central
Washington, King, Lewis, Pierce, Snohomish, and Thurston.

* From Saturday afternoon through Sunday afternoon

* heavy rain is forecast to fall Saturday afternoon through Sunday
afternoon. The period of heaviest rain will be Saturday night.
Most models show the focus of rainfall will be in Cascades from
about Stevens Pass southward, with less in the north Cascades
and Olympics. However, past experience with these heavy rain
events shows that models can easily misjudge where the rainfall
eventually falls. There is a chance that heavy rain could spread
to the northern Cascades and Olympics. The Flood Watch covers
nearly every County of western Washington.

* Minor flooding is forecast on most rivers from the Skykomish
river southward, with a few rivers touching the moderate stage.
Other rivers could flood. Urban and small stream flooding is
also possible.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
