...SIGNIFICANT RAINFALL THIS WEEK HAS INCREASED THE LANDSLIDE THREAT
IN WESTERN WASHINGTON THROUGH THIS WEEKEND...
The heavy rainfall in ecent weeks has increased soil moisture to
high levels across Western Washington. Especially high was last
Tuesday`s heavy rain and the second period of heavy rainfall
Wednesday night through Thanksgiving Day. Another wet and warm
weather system is expected to reach the area Saturday night, but will
probably not soak the area as much as the previous two systems.
However, this should maintain the heightened threat of landslides
through this weekend and could act to trigger a landslide or two.
