Wet Thanksgiving week forecast in WashingtonNovember 16, 2012 @ 5:01 am
SEATTLE (AP) - Forecasters expect a series of strong storms will bring wet and windy weather to Washington through Thanksgiving Day with heavy mountain snow and a chance of flooding on some rivers.
After a transition day Friday, the National Weather Service says the first front will hit Western Washington on Saturday with additional frontal systems on Sunday and Monday, and the wet pattern will continue through the week.
Precipitation totals through Thanksgiving could be 3 to 6 inches on the coast and 1 to 5 inches in the Western Washington lowlands.
Forecasters say snow in the Cascades is likely to affect travel through the mountain passes.
Rain with mountain snow also is forecast for Eastern Washington. There's a chance of valley snow north of I-90 on Thanksgiving.
