The National Weather Service this morning issued a flood watch for much of Western Washington, including the central Puget Sound area, as a strong, warm and wet Pacific storm approaches, creating the potential for urban and small-stream flooding. Forecasters are predicting light rain today.
Everyone is urged to check their downspouts and the city is asking residents to check storm drains on neighborhood streets to make sure they are clear.
Looks like it will warm up today and the snow will continue to melt. The latest weather system is expected to bring high temperatures close to 40 degrees in the our area. This will melt much of the our snow and slush and bring the potential for flooded streets, homes and businesses.
