Watches & Warnings

Coastal Flood Advisory, Areal Flood Advisory, Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 7:42 AM PST Jan. 18, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Coastal Flood Advisory in effect until noon PST today...

The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a coastal
Flood Advisory... which is in effect until noon PST today.

* Coastal flooding... minor flooding is possible along the
shorelines during the morning high tide Wednesday.

* Some affected locations... all of Puget Sound from Tacoma and
Seattle north to the Admiralty Inlet area will have unusually
high tides. Shorelines along Hood Canal will also be affected.

* Timing... the morning high tide Wednesday is around 9 to 10 am.
Water will be unusually high for an hour or so each side of high
tide.

* Tide info... deep low pressure over the area will produce tides
higher than the tide tables. Current anomalies are about 1.5
feet above predictions. The anomalies around the time of high
tide will be 1.5 to 2.0 feet above predictions.

* Impacts... flooding due to minor tidal overflow. Low lying areas
next to the water could get a few inches of tidal overflow this
morning. This includes some roads and parking lots.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal Flood Advisory indicates that winds and waves at high
tide could combine to generate flooding of low areas along the
shoreline.





740 am PST Wed Jan 18 2017

... The Flood Advisory remains in effect until 1015 am PST for
southeastern Kitsap... southern Mason... southwestern Snohomish...
northwestern Pierce... western King and northwestern Thurston
counties...

At 736 am PST, Doppler radar continues to show heavy rainfall over
the central Puget Sound region. This area has already seen 1.50 to
2.50 inches of rain and will see another inch of rain before it
tapers off later this morning.

Some ponding is already been reported on area roadways. These
conditions will continue through the morning commute.

Some locations that will experience minor flooding include...
Seattle, Tacoma, Bellevue, Kent, Federal Way, Auburn, Olympia,
Edmonds, Bremerton, Puyallup, Shelton, Belfair, Renton, Redmond,
Kirkland, Sammamish, Lacey, Lynnwood, Bothell and Burien.


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as
well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated, or ponding
of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.
