Excessive Rain for the Pacific Northwest Wednesday and Thursday
The rainy and windy weather pattern is starting to take shape over the Pacific Northwest today. A cold front moving onshore Wednesday will be the focus for heavy shower development and strong gusty winds.
A cold front will push through Western Washington Wednesday, bringing some heavy showers and winds…especially to the mountains. A strong warm front is going to bring more heavy rain to the region by Wednesday afternoon and evening. By Thursday, another cold front will bring more showers and windy conditions. There will be a “Marginal” risk of excessive rainfall for parts of Oregon and Washington. A Marginal risk means that there is a 5-10% chance that flash flooding conditions could occur.
Here is a look at the latest rainfall forecast. The potential for 6-12″ in some isolated parts of Washington through Friday morning.
