High winds, heavy rains expected though Monday afternoon

Brace for high winds and heavy rain throughout the day Monday, with treacherous conditions in the mountain passes, weather forecasters and state transportation experts cautioned.

A wind advisory from the National Weather Service remains in effect until 4 p.m. for the Puget Sound area, including Everett.

Gusts in the Everett area are expected to top out around 34 mph, but to be much stronger in areas such as Whidbey Island and Skagit County.

The forecast calls for up to 14 inches of snowfall during the day at Stevens Pass, with wind gusts up to 60 mph.

The weather service also has placed western Snohomish County under a coastal flood advisory for much of Monday morning.

The Everett-area forecasts calls for a high of 41 degrees, a low near 34 degrees, and a near certainty of rain.

Drivers could see downed trees or power lines, signal outages and standing water, according to the state Department of Transportation.
