Flood watches end for Snohomish County

No rain is forecast for the rest of the week.

GOLD BAR — After a couple days of heavy rainfall and flooding, the rivers in Snohomish County were beginning to recede Monday.

All flood watches and warnings in the county had ended by the morning.

On Sunday, the Skykomish River near Gold Bar crested above flood stage. The National Weather Service in Seattle had previously expected flooding to remain a concern for the Snohomish River well into Monday, and possibly Tuesday.

A shoulder lane typically used by afternoon commuters on eastbound U.S. 2 in Everett is to be closed Monday while state crews continued to park a crane there to remove debris piling up against the bridge’s support columns in the Snohomish River.

Rain was not in the forecast for most of the county this week.
