Just in case you live in a cave and haven't heard:

We're in between storms for the daylight hours of Sunday, leaving us with just a mostly cloudy day with just a few spot showers. However, another storm is brewing off the coast, and this one is not only the strongest one we've seen this week, it might be the strongest one we've seen, rain-wise, in several years as it has tapped into some tropical moisture to the south.

Rain is expected to begin again around 6 p.m. this evening, and then will be heavy through the night and through the day Monday as this system's front moves overhead and then stalls over the area. In the meantime, there are two or three waves of moisture traveling along the front that will bring the heavy rainfall.

When all is said and done, we're expecting 2-6" of rain in the lowlands, and upwards of 4-8" in the Cascades and perhaps over 9" in the Olympics. Snow levels are up around 10,000 feet, so it's all falling as rain up there.

Full story with flood warnings, etc etc.

2-6 inches? This is serious business. EVERYBODY PANIC!
