Flood Watch

Well! Now that we’re all coming down from politics, it’s time to start thinking about weather. Like the flood watch for King, Kitsap, Pierce, Lewis, and Thurston counties from 4:00 today until tomorrow night. Says the National Weather Service:

“PERIODS OF LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP OVER
THE WATCH AREA THURSDAY AND PERSIST THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT.
RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 6 TO 8 INCHES ARE POSSIBLE ON THE NORTH
COAST AND THE OLYMPIC RANGE…WITH 5 TO 7 INCHES POSSIBLE IN THE
NORTH CASCADES. THERE IS THE POTENTIAL FOR LOCALIZED AMOUNTS TO
EXCEED 10 INCHES ON THE SOUTHWEST FACING SLOPES OF THE OLYMPICS.
IN THE LOWLANDS PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS ARE LIKELY TO REACH 1.5 TO
2.5 INCHES OVERNIGHT TONIGHT WITH PERIODS OF MODERATE TO HEAVY
RAIN CONTINUING ON FRIDAY. NEW COMPUTER MODELS ARE SHIFTING
HEAVY PRECIPITATION SOUTHWARD FROM EARLIER GUIDANCE AND ARE ALSO
SHOWING HEAVY AMOUNTS TONIGHT AND EARLY FRIDAY IN THE LOWLANDS.

So be careful and don’t get washed away. Personally, I’m just glad that this waited a few days. I would have partied in the streets in the rain on Tuesday, but I’m glad we all stayed dry.
