...PERIODS OF MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL WILL LEAD TO AN INCREASED
THREAT OF LANDSLIDES IN WESTERN WASHINGTON...

Elevated soil moisture across Western Washington will increase to
near threshold as another round of moderate to heavy rain spreads
across the region this evening. Additional rainfall amounts of 1
to 2 inches in the lowlands and 2 to 4 inches in portions of the
Olympics and Cascades can be expected through Monday night. This
will put extra pressure on soil instability, leading to an
increased threat of landslides during this time period. The
highest rainfall totals will be focused across the Olympics and
Central/Southern Cascades where the landslide risk will be
highest.
