First “Storm” of the Season Update

Posted: October 15th, 2019
NWS Seattle

As the advertised series of systems approach, forecast rainfall amounts have edged slightly upward. The map above is not concerning, but the latest point forecast tells a different story—nearly seven inches between tonight and Monday! For what it’s worth, current worst-case model runs don’t look that bad, and the latest NWS Area Forecast Discussion mentions the possibility of an overforecast, but it’s time to watch closely and begin to prepare.
