DISCUSSION:

It's been extremely wet the last couple of days, and I don't see the pattern shifting a whole lot as we close out the week. The bulk of the energy left 1-3" on average across Western Washington the last 48 hours. We should see that rain turn a bit more isolated on Friday and Saturday. 

A FLOOD WATCH is still in effect for 90% of Western Washington. A few rivers are under the flood status with potential for landslides tonight and tomorrow. Additional storms are tracking towards the PNW so I expect to keep rain in our forecast every single day on into next week.

A atmospheric river event has been forming and sitting overhead. We see another round of that developing which means rain amounts will continue to run high. The snow level doesn't drop all that much so we're going to keep a mix of rain and snow up on the mountains every day. 

56 days until the Spring Equinox!

And we finally get a 5PM sunset on Sunday!
