...CONTINUED HEAVY RAINFALL THIS WEEKEND WILL LEAD TO AN
INCREASED THREAT OF LANDSLIDES IN WESTERN WASHINGTON...
Persistent rainfall throughout the month has increased soil moisture
to high levels across western Washington. Heavy rainfall of 4 to 6
inches in the mountains and 1 to 2 inches in the lowlands is expected
to fall through the weekend. This amount of rain will put extra
pressure on soil instability, leading to an increased threat of
landslides.
