... Another potent early season front to bring more rain and gusty
winds late Monday night into Tuesday...

Significant rainfall affected southwest Washington and northwest
Oregon Sunday, as the first in a series of early season moved
across the region. Most locations received one-half to three-
quarters of an inch of rain, while coastal and higher terrain
locations locally received an inch or more.

After Post-frontal showers and isolated thunderstorms Monday, the
next frontal system will be quick on its heels, spreading rain
onshore into southern Washington by sunrise Tuesday. This system
is expected to bring another round of significant rainfall to the
region Tuesday. Expected rainfall totals from the system Tuesday
appear to be similar, if not slightly higher than sunday's front.

Gusty south winds can be expected Tuesday, both along the coast
and inland. Gusts along the coast may approach 50 mph along the
beaches and headlands, making this the first significantly windy
cold front of the season. Inland areas, including the Willamette
Valley, may experience gusts as high as 35 mph Tuesday.

Those planning to spend time in the Cascades should be prepared
for an extended period of autumn-like weather that will last
through at least Wednesday. Snow levels are expected to lower to
6000 to 7000 feet with the passage of the cold front Tuesday and
Tuesday night. Even if it is not cold enough to snow, those in the
Cascades should be prepared for more cold, raw, wet weather
through at least Wednesday.
