...Heavy rain increases the risk of flooding on the Norse Peak
and Jolly Mountain burn areas through the weekend...

Several moisture laden weather systems will be moving through the
Pacific Northwest through the rest of the week and into the
weekend. These systems are expected to produce heavy rain along
and just east of the crest of the Washington Cascade mountains.
At this time, the greatest threat of heavy rain looks to be
Thursday and again Saturday into Sunday.

Snow levels will be above 7000 feet on Thursday. On Saturday, snow
levels will start off around 4000 feet but rise to near 7500 feet
by late day.

The burn areas are more susceptible to flooding due to the bare
ground with increased runoff and the possibility of rock slides
and debris flows.

People living near or downstream of the burn areas, are urged to
pay attention to the latest forecasts as this weather pattern
evolves.
