Rain Rain Go Away

The National Weather Service issued a brief update regarding the storm system currently affecting Western Washington and Oregon.   A slow moving frontal system remains draped across much of Oregon and SW Washington, with disturbances travelling along the front and producing occasional surges in rainfall.

The next surge of rainfall is developing across Western Oregon this afternoon, but the focus of heaviest precipitation appears to be closer to the Oregon and California border. Rain will taper off to showers by Wednesday morning, as the front moves east of the Cascades.  The primary affected areas will be south of Salem, however some local rivers and drainages may be higher than normal.

Though we have seemed to miss the brunt of this storm please keep an eye on the  storm drains and rake up those pesky leaves.
