Episode Narrative Cold air following a very strong Pacific frontal system brought widespread low elevation snow to Southwest Washington Monday night/Tuesday morning. Two more strong weather systems in this series brought heavy rains Wednesday and Thursday. The widespread heavy rain combined with melting snow to bring many rivers above flood stage.
Event Narrative Heavy rain combined with snowmelt runoff causing the Grays River near Rosburg to overflow its banks and flood low lying areas. The Grays River crested at 14.7 feet on March 15th at 2 pm PDT, 2.7 feet above flood stage.
