Here are the numbers…wow. Timberline Lodge has been seeing 1/4 to 1/3″ rainfall per hour for the last 24 hours!
Leading up to the big flood on the Sandy River last January, we saw totals up around 9″ at Timberline Lodge. Please let us know if you start to see flooding in your area.
Back here in Portland, only around 1″ so far, so no flooding expected, especially with the rain ending this evening.
11pm Update: Here are the new numbers as of 10pm…
Can’t believe we haven’t seen flood problems up along the upper Sandy River, but our news people say nothing’s going on up there. Let me know if that’s not the case.
The NWS has the Hood and Clackamas Rivers under a Flood Watch due to all the mountain rain. The 12 hour break (the next 12 hours) in rain up there should help quite a bit.
Not much to talk about in the longer range maps tonight. Weak systems attempt to pass through a mild West Coast Ridge the first few days of 2012. So no significant weather through at least the middle of next week.
