The Department of Emergency Management attended another briefing from the National Weather Service today. They didn’t make any changes to the rainfall total, however, they did make a revision to their wind forecast.
The Lower Columbia area can expect gusty conditions beginning around 6:00 p.m. tonight and lasting until 2:00 a.m. Gusts are expected to be anywhere 30-45 mph. This is also when we can expect the period of heaviest rain. The rain will begin to taper off tomorrow.
The Cowlitz River was downgraded from “Flooding Possible” to “River to Monitor.”
