Flood Watch

Posted on 21st November 2017 at 08:38

A Flood Watch goes up later today in Lewis County and points north, as heavy rain moves into the region today and tonight. The Flood Watch covers the western portion of Lewis County, along with much of western and northwestern Washington. The Weather Service says that the first shot of rain today and tonight will dump between 3 and 5 inches of rain on the Olympics and the Cascades, followed by another 2 to 4 inches of rain on tomorrow and tomorrow night. With the snow level above 8,000 feet, most of this will come down as rain, which will then cause local rivers and streams to rise. At this time, they’re saying that any flooding will be minor, and should be confined to areas like the Skokomish, Skagit, Nooksack, Snoqualmie and White rivers.
