  Weather statement for this week

Several vigorous frontal systems will move through western Washington this week which will bring wind and rain, and may cause the rivers to rise to flood stage. The National Weather Service suggests monitoring weather forecasts closely during the next few days. Here's the statement released around noon Monday, Dec. 26:

...ACTIVE WEATHER FOR WESTERN WASHINGTON THIS WEEK...

THE FIRST SYSTEM WILL MOVE THROUGH TONIGHT. IT WILL BRING BREEZY OR
LOCALLY WINDY CONDITIONS TO THE COAST AND NORTHWEST INTERIOR. IT
WILL ALSO BRING SNOW TO THE MOUNTAINS...MAINLY ABOVE 3000 FEET.

A SECOND WETTER SYSTEM WILL MOVE ONSHORE TUESDAY NIGHT. THIS WILL
BRING ANOTHER ROUND WINDY CONDITIONS TO THE COAST AND NORTHWEST
INTERIOR. SNOW LEVELS WILL RISE ABOVE PASS LEVELS WITH THIS SYSTEM
ALTHOUGH SIGNIFICANT SNOW ACCUMULATIONS COULD OCCUR ON THE
VOLCANOES.

A THIRD SYSTEM WILL BRING MORE RAIN AND WIND LATE WEDNESDAY. SNOW
LEVELS SHOULD BE HIGH ENOUGH THAT MOUNTAIN SNOW WILL NOT BE A
CONCERN. THIS SYSTEM WILL LIKELY BRING ANOTHER ROUND OF BREEZY TO
WINDY CONDITIONS TO ALL AREAS INCLUDING THE PUGET SOUND AREA.

WHILE THERE IS STILL A BIT OF UNCERTAINTY...MODELS SUGGEST A DEEP
LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL MOVE ONSHORE OVER OR JUST TO THE NORTH OF
WESTERN WASHINGTON ON FRIDAY OR FRIDAY NIGHT. IN ADDITION TO ANOTHER
PERIOD OF LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN AND HEAVY MOUNTAIN SNOW...THIS SYSTEM
HAS THE POTENTIAL TO CAUSE DAMAGING WINDS OVER PORTIONS OF THE AREA
IF FORECAST MODELS ARE CORRECT.

WHILE NO PARTICULAR SYSTEM APPEARS THAT IT WILL CAUSE WIDESPREAD
FLOODING...RIVERS WILL RISE. SOME OF THE MORE FLOOD PRONE
RIVERS...LIKE THE SKOKOMISH...MAY RISE ABOVE FLOOD STAGE BY THE
END OF THE WEEK.

RESIDENTS OF WESTERN WASHINGTON ARE URGED TO CLOSELY MONITOR
WEATHER FORECASTS DURING THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS.
