Periods of heavy rain over the Olympic mountains and north Cascades beginning later Monday and continuing into Wednesday next week could cause flooding, according to a statement released Saturday by the National Weather Service. The statement continues as:

A STRONG FRONTAL SYSTEM IS FORECASTED TO STALL OVER WESTERN WASHINGTON LATE MONDAY INTO WEDNESDAY NEXT WEEK. THIS SYSTEM HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BRING VERY HEAVY RAINS TO THE OLYMPICS AND NORTH CASCADES WITH LESSER AMOUNTS OVER THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN CASCADES.

IF THE STALLED FRONT SCENARIO COME TO PASS...THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE OF FLOODING ON THE RIVERS FLOWING OFF OF THE OLYMPICS AND NORTH CASCADES BEGINNING AS EARLY AS TUESDAY  ORNING.

THERE IS STILL PLENTY OF TIME FOR THE FORECAST TO CHANGE. A SMALL SHIFT NORTH OR SOUTH IN THE JET STREAM WILL RESULT IN A VERY DIFFERENT SCENARIO OVER WESTERN WASHINGTON.

PEOPLE LIVING ALONG THE RIVERS FLOWING OFF THE OLYMPICS AND NORTH CASCADES SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TO THE LATEST UPDATES OVER THE WEEKEND.
