Meteorologist Marisa Woloszyn’s Forecast Discussion:
A strong front pushed through Thursday morning, bringing heavy rain and snow. A Flood Advisory remains in effect until 10 p.m. Thursday; rainfall totals will be around 1-3 inches and minor flooding is expected.
A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 4 p.m. for the Coast Range and Cascades. For the coastal mountains, 3-6″ of snow are expected above 1000 ft. Heavier amounts are expected for the Cascades with 6-10″ of snow above 2000 ft.
Showers will lighten up throughout the Thursday, but not completely leave the area. We will remain under the control of an upper-level, low pressure system over the Pacific Ocean, which will have waves continue to move through it; scattered showers continue Friday through Sunday. Expect a short dry period, just in time for Christmas, Monday through Tuesday morning, before showers return Tuesday evening.
