Hydrologic Outlook

Hydrologic Outlook issued February 26 at 1:35PM PST by NWS Seattle WA

ESFSEW A strong frontal system will move across south-central British Columbia Tuesday night through Wednesday night bringing another round of moderate to heavy rainfall to western Washington. Storm total rainfall amounts of 3 to 5 inches are possible across the Olympics and Cascades with 2 to 3 inches possible across the lowlands. Snow levels will briefly rise from below 1000 feet on Tuesday to just above 4000 feet on Wednesday, which will contribute to greater runoff and snowmelt contributions, particularly over the Olympics and central Cascades. This will lead to rapid rises in river and streams across southwestern Washington, especially through the Skokomish, Chehalis, Skookumchuck, and Newaukum River basins. At this time, the Skokomish River near Potlatch is the only river forecast to enter flood stage, though there is a 35% chance for the Newaukum River near Chehalis to enter flood stage Thursday morning.
