Rainy Thursday

Today we received quite a bit more rain than was anticipated from this storm. Our director talked with Andy Bryant at the National Weather Service (NWS) in Portland and he said the worst of the rain should be over for the day. The rain we saw was supposed to have hit south of Portland but changes in the jetstream caused it to come further north.

The Cowlitz at Kelso is predicted to crest at about 20 feet without flooding. We will be watching the rivers carefully in case any of this should change. Keep an eye on the NWS river forecast website for updates.
