More rain than you can shake a pumpkin at

Updated Friday 8:40 a.m. to add Skykomish Flood Warning

SEATTLE -- You might say this storm packed a punch. It also packed more than an entire month's amount of rain in one day.

A second day of rainy, breezy weather is on tap Friday as we keep an eye on area rivers to see if the rain is too much to contain in their banks, and flood warnings continued for many rivers.

As of 6 a.m., as much as 4 inches of rain had fallen along the North Coast with this storm. Farther inland, storm totals were running between 2.75" and 4.00" from Seattle south through Olympia, and 1.00-1.50" from Everett north (a bit less due to rain shadowing off the Olympics.)

Seattle's storm total stood at 2.78". To put that in perspective, we only received 2.17" for the entire month of October.

Flood Warnings continued on the Skokomish, Bogachiel, Snoqualmie, Skykomish and Tolt Rivers. All rivers are expected to be in the minor flooding category, except the Tolt which is in the moderate category. The good news is the flood warnings have been canceled on the Nooksack and Stillaguamish as it appears the rivers will stay below flood stage.

A Flood Watch remains in effect for all other mountain-fed rivers north of Lewis County. (A Flood Watch means flooding is possible. If flooding becomes imminent or observed, then it would be changed to a Flood Warning.)

In all, we're about halfway through the event as of Friday morning. A second storm is winding up offshore and just beginning to push into western Washington, bringing another round of rain. The good news is, this storm is not quite as wet but still pretty impressive.

We are looking at an additional 6 inches of rain in the Olympics, another 2-4 inches of rain in the Cascades -- primarily North Cascades -- and another 0.50-1.50" in the lowlands -- higher amounts in the Shelton-Bremerton corridor. That means storm totals could push 4-5" in some lowland locations, or nearly the entire quota of November rain.

In addition, urban flooding continues to be a likely problem, and an urban and small stream flooding advisory is in effect for King, Pierce, Kitsap, Mason, Pierce, Snohomish and Thurston Counties.

Steady rains will finally taper off to more scattered showers later this evening as this storm's front passes.

Saturday and Sunday should be not as wet, but we'll still have frequent showers roaming around as the storm's main trough of low pressure slides through. Snow levels will drop to 6,500 feet Saturday, then 4,000 feet Saturday night and Sunday, which will aid in taking additional pressure off the rivers.

Monday is looking like our calmest day of the next seven, but the rest of the week continues to be very soggy and breezy, with no less than four more storms rolling through between next Tuesday and Friday (midday Tuesday, early Wednesday, Wednesday night and midday Friday). Looks like this November could end up good for maybe four or five Octobers!
