... Wet and windy through the weekend for southwest Washington and northwest Oregon...
A moist and slow-moving frontal system is bringing widespread heavy rain to southwest Washington and northwest Oregon today. The band of heaviest rain will slowly shift southeast through this evening... before becoming confined to the Lane County Cascades overnight. Expect numerous Post-frontal showers to continue across the region through Thursday.
Storm total rainfall totals upwards of 1.5 to 2.5 inches are expected in the inland valleys by Thursday afternoon. Coastal locations are expected to receive 2 to 4 inches of rain... and 3 to 6 inches of rain are forecast for most of the Coast Range and Cascades.
Minor urban flooding is possible due to Autumn Leaves clogging storm drains. Additionally... there is a possibility of minor flooding on a couple of fast responding small streams and rivers due to the heavy rain. Burn scar areas from recent wildfires in the Cascades may also be subject to debris flows or mudslides. All of this will be monitored closely over the coming days.
After a lull on Thursday night and early Friday... another strong system may affect part of the area later Friday into this weekend. Details on this system are still uncertain... but it appears southwest Washington and northwest Oregon are in for another period of wet and windy weather.
