Update Sunday morning: At 8:13 am Sunday morning the National Weather Service issued a revised Flood Watch bulletin which said the flood watch continues for a portion of West Central Washington - including the counties of King, Snohomish, Lewis and Thurston - until 5 pm this afternoon.

Heavy rain across the area has come to an end but many rivers continue to run high and there remains a threat of additional flooding. A flood watch means there is the potential fr flooding based on current forecasts.

Area residents should monitor weather forecasts and be alert for possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.

Do not drive cars vans or trucks through flooded areas as this is the cause of most flood related deaths in Washington.

End flood watch update. Original story is below



(REGIONAL) -- The National Weather Service says flooding can be expected through tonight on several rivers in western Washington that have become swollen by heavy rains the past two days.

Heavy Rain over the Olympics and Central Washington Cascades yesterday and overnight will drive the following rivers above flood stage:

The Skokomish River near Potlatch affecting Mason County

The Skykomish River near Gold Bar affecting Snohomish County

The Snoqualmie River near the Falls affecting King County

Details:

There's a flood warning posted for the Skykomish River near Gold Bar from now up to late Sunday night. At 9:30 pm Saturday the river had risen to 10.3 feet and flood stage is 15 feet.

Moderate flooding is forecast as the Skykomish rises above flood stage around 3am Sunday and will crest near 17.1 feet around 5 am Sunday. The river will fall below flood stage by early afternoon Sunday.

At 17 feet the Skykomish River would cause flooding from near Index, Washington downstream through Sultan and on to the Snoqualmie river.

Flood waters from the Skykomish will cover numerous roads including the Ben Howard Road, the Index-Galena Rd and the Tualco Loop Road. There will also be flooding in the town of Sultan.

Heavy rain Saturday and overnight will drive the Stillaguamish River and the Cowlitz River at Randle above flood stage Sunday morning.

At 2:09 am Sunday the Stillaguamish river was at 12.5 Feet and flood stage is 14.0 feet.

The river is forecast to rise above flood stage and crest near 14.6 feet around 11 am Sunday. The river will fall below flood stage early in the afternoon Sunday.

At 14 feet the Stillaguamish River will produce minor flooding around Silvana including over Pioneer Highway

Late last night the Snoqualmie River in King County reached flood phase 2 and minor flooding was expected in low lying areas.

Early Saturday morning the Tolt River in King County reached flood phase 2. Minor flooding may occur with homes in the San Souci area possibly by Sunday.

Heavy rain is forecast to continue through Sunday morning. The period of heaviest rain was expected Saturday night and into early Sunday morning with the focus of rainfall in the Cascades from about Stevens Pass southward.

Less rain is forecast for the North Cascades and Olympics although there is still a chance the heavy rain could spread to the northern Cascades and Olympics.

The flood watch remains in effect for all counties in Western Washington with the exception of Island and San Juan counties

Minor flooding is forecast on most rivers flowing out of the Cascades from the Skykomish River southward, with a few rivers cresting in the moderate flood category.

Other rivers in the area could also flood. In addition, urban and small stream flooding is possible in some areas.

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts.

You should monitor weather forecasts and be alert for possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.

Do not drive cars vans or trucks through flooded areas as this is the cause of most flood related deaths in Washington.

Be alert for rapid changes and monitor developments by listening to NOAA Weather
radio or other local media.
