Flooded Western Washington rivers cresting

The National Weather Service says heavy rains that hit Western Washington over the weekend have eased, and rivers that flooded roads and houses are on their way down Monday or cresting.

Flood warnings remain in effect on the Skykomish, Snohomish, Snoqualmie, Chehalis, Skokomish, Satsop, Nooksack, Skagit and Stillaguamish rivers.

Meteorologist Dustin Guy in Seattle says the next front Tuesday won't be as wet. The snow level dropping to 2,000 will slow the runoff from the mountains. A winter storm watch is in effect through Tuesday for a foot of new snow in the Cascades.

Low temperatures by the end of the week are forecast in the 30s in Western Washington and below freezing in Eastern Washington.
