Special Statement

Statement as of 2:56 AM PDT on September 23, 2014

Expires 6:00 PM EDT on September 23, 2014


... The first organized frontal system of the season will bring
heavy rain to southwest Washington and northwest Oregon... and and
gusty coastal winds Tuesday night and Wednesday...

An early fall frontal system will bring a drastic change in
weather tonight and Wednesday. The main weather impact will be
widespread moderate to heavy rain that will begin along the coast
late this afternoon and slowly spread inland tonight and
Wednesday.

Rainfall totals from Tuesday through the end of the week are
expected to reach near an inch over the interior lowlands... and 1
to 2 inches for the coast and mountains. This heavy rain may
result in localized urban flooding... especially where the local
wildfires have left burn scars. Roads located below burned slopes
may be at risk for rapidly moving landslides.

Motorists are urged to use caution on the roadways over the next
few days. Given the long period of dry weather that has preceded
this front... residual oil and grease on the Road surfaces will
likely become quite slick at the onset of the rain.

Gusty winds are expected along the coastal beaches and headlands
this afternoon and evening... with gusts up to 55 mph possible.
These winds combined with the heavy rain may result in the Downing
of tree limbs... and possibly localized power outages.

The colder air mass will bring snow levels into the high
Cascades... and some of the higher mountain ski resorts may even
see some snowflakes.

... The first organized frontal system of the season to bring rain
and much cooler temperatures to southwest Washington and northwest
Oregon on Tuesday and Wednesday...

The fall equinox occurs at 729 PM PDT Monday. Right on cue... the
first organized frontal system of the fall will begin to move
onshore Tuesday. Expect widespread moderate to heavy rain to
accompany the front as it pushes across the region later Tue into
early Wed... along with some gusty winds along the coastal beaches
and headlands. This system will also usher in a showery and
significantly cooler weather pattern that will last through the
remainder of the week.

Rainfall totals from Tuesday through the end of the week are
expected to reach near an inch over the interior lowlands... and 1
to 2 inches for the coast and mountains. The colder air mass will
bring snow levels into the high Cascades... and some of the higher
mountain ski resorts may even see some snowflakes. Motorists are
urged to use caution on the roadways over the next few days.
Given the long period of dry weather that has preceded this
front... residual oil and grease on the Road surfaces will likely
become quite slick at the onset of the rain.
