Flood Watch In Western Washington
SEATTLE (AP) — Heavy rain has filled many Western Washington rivers, and forecasters say trick-or-treaters may want to carry an umbrella.
The National Weather Service issued a flood warning for the Skokomish River, which frequently floods in Mason County. They also issued a flood watch Wednesday for some rivers in King and Pierce counties and a flood advisory for most of Western Washington for urban and small stream flooding.
A flood watch is also in effect on the east side of the Cascades in Chelan, Douglas and Okanogan counties.
Meteorologist Danny Mercer in the Seattle Weather Service office says trick-or-treaters can expect more rain in Western Washington. Rain also is likely in Eastern Washington. But temperatures are mild for Halloween — 50s in Western Washington and upper 40s and 50s in Eastern Washington.
