EVERETT — Snohomish County should see a break after a week of wild weather from ice storms to floods.
High tides inundated low-lying areas on Tuesday and Wednesday, closing Ebey’s Waterfront Park and Trail in Marysville for a day. Everett and the surrounding area were under a coastal flood advisory through Wednesday afternoon.
Connie Mennie, spokesperson with the city of Marysville, said there were about 6 inches to 1 foot of water in parts of the park. As the floodwaters receded, Marysville reopened the park and the road in front of it Wednesday afternoon.
The threat of coastal flooding has subsided for this tidal cycle, said Maddie Kristell, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Seattle.
More rain is in the forecast Thursday, though not as heavy as earlier this week.
“It seems pretty normal, about a quarter of an inch throughout the day on Thursday and another round on Friday,” Kristell said.
The soggy weather might let up for New Year’s Eve celebrations this weekend.
While Saturday could bring additional showers, “there might be a good chance that most of the day is fairly dry,” with temperatures in the mid- to upper- 40s, the meteorologist noted. Sunday should be similar.
Everett was under a wind advisory through early Wednesday morning, with gusts up to 37 mph reported at Paine Field, according to the weather service.
“Things seemed to have calmed down,” Kristell said. “It might be a little breezy on Friday, but nothing on the order of magnitude we saw with the last few events.”
Stevens Pass, meanwhile, reopened late Tuesday. WSDOT asked drivers to take it slow with snow and compacted ice in many places.
