The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch for portions of Thurston and Lewis Counties in effect from late Saturday night through early Monday morning. Frontal systems are expected to bring heavy rainfall during the effective period with potential to impact the Newaukum, Skookumchuck and Chehalis rivers. If flooding does occur, it is expected to be minor. Additionally, the Flood Watch for Mason County is cancelled due to the Flood Warning issued earlier for the Skokomish River
...WINDY WEATHER POSSIBLE SATURDAY...
Windy conditions are possible Saturday over much of Western
Washington. A deep low pressure center is forecast to move north off the coast Saturday. This will bring strong southerly winds to parts of the area.
High wind is possible, sustained winds of at least 40 mph or
gusts to at least 58 mph, along the coast with less of a chance
over the northern inland areas. Most other places exposed to
southerly wind could have wind in the 20-30 mph range, with gusts 40 to 45 mph. A high wind watch is in effect for the coast.
There will also be a period of heavy rain in the Olympics. This
could bring the Skokomish River to flood stage late Saturday or
Sunday. Other rivers will experience significant rises, but are
not forecast to get close to flood stage.
