NEXT WEEK

Monday: This could actually be a pretty calm day with some clouds and sunshine. But a couple of showers might be nearby.

Tuesday: Rain will likely return, and it will likely get pretty windy too. It doesn’t look like a major wind event at the moment, but we will be closely monitoring the forecast models for the next few days in case a low pressure center develops and west Washington approaches.

Mid-Week and Beyond: While it looked like we could dry out a bit, the forecast models are now pointing to persistently humid weather with intermittent rain. The risk of landslides from excessive rainfall will continue to increase.
