...FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH
THURSDAY MORNING...

The National Weather Service in Seattle has expanded the

* Flood Watch to include portions of northwest Washington and west
  central Washington, including the following counties in
  northwest Washington: Skagit and Whatcom. In west central
  Washington, Snohomish.

* From Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning

* 4 to 6 inches in the North Cascades Wednesday and Wednesday
  night will cause rises on area rivers. A few rivers in the watch
  area could touch flood stage. These rivers include the Nooksack
  in Whatcom County, the Stillaguamish in Snohomish County, and
  to a lesser extent, the Skagit in Skagit County.

* If flooding does occur, it is expected to be minor.

* Urban and small stream flooding is also possible where some of
  the more intense rain falls. This potential will be exacerbated
  by fallen leaves and branches clogging storm drains and ditches.

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.
