Flood Watch for Grays Harbor

September 5, 2013

The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a FLOOD WATCH for Grays Harbor County from today at noon into Friday afternoon.

Significant rainfall is anticipated Thursday this afternoon through Friday, with the heaviest rainfall expected later tonight through Friday morning. Thunderstorms this afternoon and evening could produce a half inch of rain an hour or more.

There is the potential for 1 to 2 inches of rain in the lowlands and up to 4 inches in the cascades by late Friday afternoon.

The potentially excessive rainfall could lead to Flooding. A short period of intense rainfall on Thursday could cause Flash Flooding and overwhelm storm drains, leading to flooded roads. Mud or Rock Slides are also possible in steep mountainous terrain. Expect significant rises on local rivers but flooding is unlikely.
