A Flood Warning is in effect for the Skokomish River in Mason County until further notice. Minor flooding is occurring, and moderate flooding will occur at times over the coming days.


Wind will also be around on Monday, with wind gusts in the 20 to 30 mph range around the lowlands of Western Washington. Rain will be heaviest in the morning hours before it tapers by the afternoon. It will be unusually warm with highs in the 50s.

Wind Advisories and watches

Advisory: The Everett area including Edmonds, Lynnwood, and Marysville for south winds of 25 to 35 mph with gusts up to 45 mph expected until 11 a.m.

Advisory: San Juan County, Western Whatcom County and the Admiralty Inlet area for south winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 40 mph, until 10 a.m.

Advisory: North Coast and Central Coast including the cities of Beaver, Clearwater, Forks, La Push, Neah Bay, Ozette, Queets, Aberdeen and Hoquiam for South winds 25 to 35 mph with gusts up to 55 mph possible until 1 p.m. Monday.

High Wind Watch: North Coast and Central Coast including the cities of Beaver, Clearwater, Forks, La Push, Neah Bay, Ozette, Queets, Aberdeen and Hoquiam South winds 25 to 35 mph with gusts up to 55 mph possible from Monday evening through late Tuesday night.

On Tuesday, a stronger storm offshore will bring high winds to the Oregon and south Washington coast, with wind gusts possibly topping 50 mph around Grays Harbor County and north/west of Everett.

Wind gusts could reach 40 mph elsewhere. More heavy rain is likely, so it will be a day to watch closely for tree damage and power outages.

Also, with more rain ahead and saturated soils, coupled with incoming wind at times, the chance for landslides is higher in the coming days.
