TRAFFIC ALERT: Tipped-over semi blocks 2 lanes of NB I-5 near Boeing Field

Wet Black Friday

You’ll get wet heading to the mall on this Black Friday.  A big conveyor belt of rain is surging up from the southwest, but it’s going to move through pretty quickly.  It’s a rainy morning, but this afternoon the rain should taper off to showers.  Highs today will be near 50, around normal.  There is a WIND ADVISORY for the north and coast for another hour or so, and a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for the Central Cascades through noon, for another 5-9 inches of snow before it turns over to rain and eventually turns off.  If you’re driving to Pullman for the Apple Cup, be sure to carry chains. Our weekend looks better.  Tomorrow will be mainly dry, with just a few showers.  Highs in the upper 40s.  Sunday & Monday look dry, partly sunny, but colder, with highs in the mid 40s and overnight lows down to the mid 30s.  Rain returns Tuesday and continues through the middle of next week.

The Chehalis River flooding. These photos were taken Tuesday morning after the water had begun receding. I was outside at 3am trying to get my ponies to safety, fearing for their lives as I did not expect this sort of flooding. Apparently all the berm and dike upgrades the city has done since the BIG floods of 2007-2009 has caused the waters to really impact us rural folks upstream from them. In the past we would never have been impacted to this extent from such a minor flood stage. This was nearly as bad as the flood of 1996 and that was MAJOR flood stage. I guess this is the new normal!! Heaven help us if we get hit with a major flood again – our place will be swept away!!! ~ Cindy in Adna
