As he’s done for us twice before, area photographer and weather enthusiast Chris Scragg  is live-streaming this weekend’s wild weather – predicted to be very rainy and windy – and which you can watch below from the comfort of your computer:
Chris lives on SW 171st in Burien’s Three Tree Point neighborhood, and will be using weather models from the University of Washington, satellite and radar from NOAA, and warnings from the National Weather Service in Seattle.
He is also using a Davis Vantage Pro 2 weather station and a laptop webcam.
The National Weather Service has issued the following ‘Flood Watch,’ in effect through late Saturday night:
…FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM LATE TONIGHT THROUGH LATE SATURDAY NIGHT…
THE FLOOD WATCH CONTINUES FOR
* A PORTION OF WESTERN WASHINGTON…INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING COUNTIES…KING…MASON…PIERCE…SNOHOMISH.
* FROM LATE TONIGHT THROUGH LATE SATURDAY NIGHT
* A PERIOD OF HEAVY RAINFALL TONIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY MORNING WILL AFFECT THE AREA CAUSING RAPID RISES ON MORE FLOOD PRONE RIVERS IN THE WATCH AREA LATE TONIGHT AND SATURDAY. SOME RIVERS THAT ARE MOST LIKELY TO SEE MINOR FLOODING INCLUDE THE SKOKOMISH RIVER IN MASON COUNTY…THE STILLAGUAMISH RIVER IN SNOHOMISH COUNTY…THE TOLT RIVER IN KING COUNTY…AND THE PUYALLUP RIVER IN PIERCE COUNTY.
A FLOOD WATCH MEANS CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE FOR FLOODING BUT FLOODING IS NOT IMMINENT OR OCCURRING. MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE AND BE READY TO ACT QUICKLY IF FLOODING IS OBSERVED OR A WARNING IS ISSUED.
Here’s the 7-day forecast:
