Original Message A succession of storms through midday Wednesday is forecast to drench portions of Washington, with up to 11 inches of snow-melting rain falling in the Cascades and Olympics, increasing the chance of flooding and landslides.

Its a one-two-three punch of systems, and we dont get much of a break, said Kirby Cook, National Weather Service meteorologist. It looks like a fire hose coming in off the Pacific.

This additional heavy rainfall will, and already has, triggered localized urban flooding and will push rivers above flood stage in parts of western Washington and western Oregon. Since the beginning of this wet weather pattern nearly a foot of rain has fallen in at least one location near Washington's Olympic Mountains. Feet of snow will also pile up in the Cascades, and other mountain chains from this Pacific onslaught.

Record rainfall has already brought flooding to the Portland, Oregon area to start the work week and the risk of flooding will continue into Thursday.
