Wind and Small-Stream Flood Advisory Issued for Redmond

The National Weather Service is also forecasting that parts of the Snoqualmie River could reach flood stage by Tuesday morning.

The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory and small-stream flood advisory for Redmond, as steady rain continues to fall across Western Washington.

Tim Fuller, public works director for the City of Redmond, said at noon that his department had responded to about a dozen calls today related to flooding caused by clogged storm drains. City crews were able to respond to all the sites, but Fuller requests that residents to check the drains in their neighborhood and remove leaves if necessary.

"We can always use a little help," he said.

The wind advisory calls for wind from the south of 20 to 30 mph, with gusts up to 45 mph, through 4 p.m. today. The strong winds are expected to bring down tree limbs and cause scattered power outages throughout the greater Puget Sound region.

Minor flooding is also forecast for urban and small streams throughout much of Western Washingon, including Redmond. A total of between 1 and 2 inches of rainfall is expected in the Puget Sound lowlands today.

Meanwhile, a flood watch has been issued for parts of the Snoqualmie River, which could reach minor flood stage Monday night or early Tuesday.
