SEATTLE (AP) - The Weather Service says heavy rains headed for Washington could cause flooding by midweek on the Skokomish River, which commonly floods in Mason County in the fall and winter.

Forecasters say Monday’s rain will be followed by a stronger front Tuesday and Wednesday. They expect 1-to-3 inches of rain on the coast, 5 inches in the Olympics, 1-to-2 inches in the Western Washington interior and 1-to-3 inches in the Cascades.

The Skokomish River drains the southeast corner of the Olympics and takes the heavy runoff.

The Weather Service says showers are likely through next weekend statewide.
