Flood risk dropping as warnings, watches end

Flood watches and warnings have been taken down for much of western Washington, as river levels in many areas are steadily dropping.

The National Weather Service has only one flood warning and one flood watch remaining for the region. The flood warning at for the Skokomish River in Mason County, as the river is expected to stay above flood stage through Saturday night. The Skokomish is forecast to drop back below flood stage late Saturday night or early Sunday.

Skagit County is where the one remaining flood watch is, as the Skagit River is still being watched closely. The river is expected to get close to its 28-foot flood stage, but is forecast to crest at 27.8 feet on Saturday. After Saturday, the Skagit is expected to go down quickly.

The main concern is now more landslides, as the NWS has put out a special weather statement that warns of more slides as the rain continues to fall.
