Today's Forecast

Updated: 6:15 p.m.

My goodness what a soaking! There was a time this morning when I felt like I might need a paddle to get around. This storm developed as advertised with gusty winds and of course, lots of rain.

The storm rain totals are impressive, ranging from more than 3 inches on the coast to a record 1.07" in Seattle.  Tacoma and Olympia were also over an inch.

As of this writing, the steady rain is beginning to turn to scattered showers. The wind warnings have been dropped, but a FLOOD WARNING remains in effect on the Skokomish River (Only minor flooding is expected.)

Next on the agenda could be some thunderstorms. Once the steady rain winds down, some cool unstable air will move in and that can kick off isolated thunderstorms through Thursday afternoon.

Thursday starts with temperatures in the low 50s and ends with highs in the upper 50s. Friday should be much calmer however that could be the calm before the next storm. The computer models are hinting that another strong area of low-pressure will move through the Northwest kicking off some strong winds and course more rain. That could make for some very interesting tailgating at Husky Stadium.

Up in the mountains the snow level has dropped to 4,500 feet and some of the higher elevations will be picking up some rain and snow. East of the mountains will be considerably more calm than the west. However, folks there will not be able to avoid the rain. High temperatures will range from the upper 60s to the low 60s.

Let there be no doubt. The season of fall storms is underway.
