...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.
