Wet week ahead in Washington, including Halloween

Staff and wire report
 

SEATTLE — The National Weather Service says Washington is in for a wet week, including Halloween.

Forecasters say a warm front will drop heavy rain in places through mid-week, with the chance of minor flooding in places, including the Skokomish River in Mason County.

In the Washington Palouse, a flood advisory was in effect this morning for small streams and low-lying terrain after up to an inch of rain or more fell overnight. The advisory was set to expire at 12:30 p.m.

In Spokane, the Weather Service reported 0.39 inches of rain from 12 a.m. Sunday through 9 a.m. today.

Forecasters say the rain on the east slopes of the Cascades could cause flooding in areas burned by summer wildfires.

In Spokane, the chance of rain is 60 percent today and 70 percent on Tuesday with a possible break on Wednesday before another storm arrives on Wednesday night and Thursday.

Highs through Wednesday will be in the lower 60s with overnight lows in the upper 40s.

There may be a break in the rain by the end of the week but more rain is expected next weekend.
