Soggy winter spells end to West Coast drought

Five to 10 inches of rain are predicted for the entire coast over the next seven days, including Pacific County where a flood watch is in effect. On top of what the fall and winter have already delivered, this round of storms decisively ends the region's multi-year drought. “Over the next 7 days, the National GFS model forecasts suggest a LOT of precipitation along the West Coast, with 5-10 inches being common over West Coast terrain,” University of Washington weatherman Cliff Mass said Monday. “...The West Coast drought is history. Good for veggie prices next year.”
