Twenty-four to 36-hour rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches should be common over the mountains with local amounts up to 6 inches possible. The heaviest amounts are expected to fall over the southern facing slopes of the Olympics but most mountain areas will likely see significant rainfall by wednesday afternoon.  Some of the rivers flowing off the Olympics or Cascades could reach flood stage wednesday if the expected heavy rains materialize. Urban areas could also experience minor flooding tuesday and wednesday due to heavy rain flowing into storm drains clogged with autumn leaves.
