There’s still a chance for more severe rainfall moment, especially along the Olympic Peninsula and the Washington Coast. Severe showers can bring strong localized wind, hail, and a eventuality for gyration. The Storm Prediction Center has put that area in a” Borderline Threat” order.
Showers are still possible this autumn and evening from Whatcom County to Pierce County. This kind of convective pattern is common in the fall and spring and gives us a good shot as seeing some lightning. I see a lot of heavy rain and hail heading our way at this hour. Erin will be tracking it all the rest of the night.

Tornado Warnings are rare in our neck of the forestland ( generally they touch down without warning), but if this happens again we should make sure observers know to get to an interior room of the house and to stay down from windows. Indeed small tornados are n’t worth intruding with. The last Washington williwaw hit in September in Battle Ground. It was a small EF-0 and there were no injuries or deaths. That one, like utmost we get dropped without a Tornado Warning being issued.
