An upper-level low is bringing much-needed rain to the Northwest. In addition to this, we've seen some snow in the higher elevations of Washington State including the Mount Rainier Visitor Center, which sits at around 5400' in elevation.
We have seen impressive rainfall totals, especially in Washington. Ocean Park saw 3.67" of rain! The heaviest rainfall has been along the Cascades and to the west. As this system continues inland, expect increasing rainfall and gusty winds!
Multiple rounds of rain will move through the Northwest over the next couple of days. Gusty winds and heavy rain will be possible the next few days. Rainfall will not nearly be as heavy or widespread in intensity as we wrap up the work week. On average folks will see an additional one inch of rain, localized amounts of up to 2 inches will be possible. In some portions of the mountains, we can see snow. Expect isolated snowfall totals of up to a foot in the Cascades through Friday.
