KOMO has an update here.
We are under a special weather statement: “HEAVY RAINFALL WILL LEAD TO AN INCREASED THREAT OF LANDSLIDES IN WESTERN WASHINGTON.”
“Major Atmospheric River Period for the West Coast” begins this evening, according to Cliff Mass.
“Clouds will thicken up, too, and a vigorous cold front will arrive later as well. This front is going to kick up our winds – so much so that a HIGH SURF ADVISORY will be in effect along the coast and heavy rain will fall across the interior. Rainfall amounts could easily exceed .5-1″ and some of the downpours will take place during the evening commute.”
Also, because we know everyone who follows Maple Leaf Life cares as much about the weather as we do and would really, really like to know how much it’s rained so far this year: 6.68 inches at Maple Leaf Life South, as of this morning.
