After nearly a week of heavy rain, much of the Pacific Northwest will see a break as precipitation tapers off during the day on Wednesday. Rain over the past week has increased soil
moisture to high levels across western Washington, soaking soils to the point where landslide risk level is moderate. Some landslides have been reported near Edmonds. More landslides are possible. Areas most susceptible for landslides are steep coastal bluffs and other steep hillsides. Periods of showers are expected for the rest of this week. The landslide risk is expected to gradually diminish by the weekend.
Although the steady rain has ended, the Skokomish River and the Chehalis River near Grand Mound and at Porter will continue to run near or above flood stage before gradually receding.
