Rainfall of 2 to 5 inches over much of Western Washington during the last few days has increased soil moisture to high levels, which could result in isolated landslides. This elevated threat will persist through today, then slowly decrease over the next few days. Several landslides have already been reported or suspected in the last couple days, including one along the Burke-Gilman trail in King County and another on the railroad tracks just south of Everett. Precipitation will fall as snow above 3000 feet elevation, and those areas will not be affected.
