Rainy weather forecast into Thanksgiving Day across state; chance of W. Washington flooding


SEATTLE — Rainy weather with mostly mild temperatures are forecast into Thanksgiving Day across Washington.

The National Weather Service expects heavy rain Tuesday: 1 to 2 inches in Western Washington and 3 to 6 inches on the west slopes of the Cascades.

With the snow level around 6,500 feet, minor flooding is likely on some flood-prone rivers: the Cowlitz, Puyallup, Snoqualmie, Tolt, Skykomish, Snohomish, Stillaguamish and Nooksack.

Forecasters say the weekend should be cooler and drier. The snow level will likely drop back down toward the mountain passes, bringing the chance of snow for drivers returning home from the holiday.

Snow could reach valley floors in Eastern Washington.
