Rain due back for Monday evening commute

Rains that produced slick streets and highways around the Puget Sound area Sunday, contributing to numerous spin-outs and collisions,  are expected to take a break for the Monday morning commute, but pick up again by afternoon.

More than a half-inch of rain fell at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport between 2 and 8 p.m. Sunday, as the peak of the storm passed through, said Doug McDonnal of the Weather Service.

Heaviest rainfall  for the weekend was in the mountains, with about 7 inches falling in the Olympics, and 6 inches in the North Cascades, between midday Saturday to Sunday evening.

A new storm system, McDonnal said, is expected to bring rain and wind to the Puget Sound area by the time of the Monday evening commute.

Forecasts call for showers Tuesday, followed by partly sunny conditions Wednesday and Thursday before another round of showers arrives for the weekend.
