After a dry and mild start to the week, showers return to the Seattle area for midweek.

Another storm system moving from the Pacific into the Northwest will bring a return of showers through Thursday.

Any precipitation could worsen the landslide potential in the region, where the ground is heavily saturated from rains earlier in March. Some of those rains have been blamed for a deadly landslide at Oso, Wash., about 30 miles from Everett.

In addition, snow levels along the Cascade Range will remain below pass level as the storm moves in.

Cloudy skies and rain showers look to stay in the area throughout much of the week with a slight dip in temperatures late in the week and into the weekend.
