The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a flood watch which includes King and Pierce counties effective immediately though Wednesday morning.
Storm total rainfall in the Cascades through Wednesday will range from two to four inches, with the snow level between 7,000 to 8,000 feet. Roughly one to two inches of rain is expected over the lowlands of Puget Sound.
The most flood-prone rivers in the watch area include the Puyallup River near Orting and the White River below Mud Dam.
Rainfall in the lowlands will likely cause street flooding in poorly drained areas where storm drains are covered by leaves. If you see a storm drain near your home that has debris blocking it, please remove the debris.
A flood watch means conditions are favorable for flooding but flooding is not imminent or occurring. Monitor the latest forecast from the National Weather Service and be ready to act quickly if flooding is observed or a warning is issued.
