In Forks, moisture rolls in off the Pacific Ocean, passes over Forks and collects against the Olympic Mountain Range directly to the east of Forks WA.
But: there is SO MUCH moisture available that the entire region receives the overflow rainfall. The western slopes of the Olympic Mountains receive 140 - 170 inches per year, while the towns in the region still overflow with rainfall, from Aberdeen and Hoquiam in the southwest Olympic Peninsula to Neah Bay in the northwest Olympic Peninsula. This weather pattern results in a rainshadow effect on the leeward side of the Olympic mountains.
