More wild weather: Rain, flooding, gusts — maybe landslides

A cold front from the Pacific was headed for Puget Sound, the National Weather Service said.

EVERETT — Snohomish County on Sunday was forecast to see more extreme weather through the start of the week, leading to alerts from the National Weather Service.

A cold front from the Pacific Ocean was headed southeast and expected to sweep over the greater Puget Sound area Monday morning. It was forecast to bring heavy rain, gusty wind and flooding rivers.

Key points from authorities:

Flood warnings were in effect for the Snohomish River in the city of Snohomish and near Monroe. The river was forecast to swell to moderate flood stage on Monday, according to the National Weather Service in Seattle.

A flood warning was also in effect for the Skykomish River near Gold Bar. Meteorologists predicted the river would come close to hitting moderate flood stage on Monday.

Heavy rain might cause urban flooding, especially in low-lying areas or places with poor drainage.

Drivers are encouraged to slow down and increase following distance when encountering heavy rain or stormy conditions.

Landslide danger was predicted to continue increasing after a week of wet weather.

The Sounder N Line train between Everett and Seattle was cancelled for Monday as a precaution due to landslide danger. Passengers were encouraged to use regular bus service as an alternative.

A county-wide wind advisory was in effect until 7 p.m. Monday. Gusts up to 45 mph were predicted, said Scott North, a spokesperson for the Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management.

The Snohomish Conty flood watch website is updated every five minutes.

For information about flooding on the Skykomish, Snoqualmie and Snohomish rivers, call 425-388-3653.
