Guy says the highest wind speed around the Puget Sound area was recorded around 4:00 am on Alki Point in West Seattle at 47 mph.

Another round of wind and heavier rain is expected Monday afternoon just in time for the afternoon commute after a brief break with off and on showers throughout the day.

"It's going to definitely stay on the breezy side," Guy says of Monday's forecast.

The National Weather Service predicts the strongest winds on the coast and north interior, while gusts of 20-30 mph are expected in the Puget Sound area. A high wind watch has been posted for the south Washington coast Monday night.

Minor flooding is expected on the Skokomish River at Potlatch.

While there's been no significant flooding around the Puget Sound area, another mudslide canceled Sounder north line commuter train service between Everett and Seattle.

In the mountains, heavy snow is falling on Stevens Pass. Traction traction tires are advised. A mix of rain and snow was falling on Snoqualmie Pass mid-day.
