A storm train will continue to unleash rain and gusty winds in Portland through the weekend.

The first storm in the series arrived on Wednesday, bringing windy conditions and the potential for showers by the afternoon.

While rain and low clouds may result in some travel delays, the brunt of the rain will be delivered farther south across northern California.

Meanwhile, winds will remain gusty as each new storm plows into the coast. Gusts may exceed 35 mph near the Gorge at times.

Stormy weather will persist straight through the weekend. Southwestern Oregon may get in on some of the heaviest rain of the storms by Sunday. The potential exists for localized flooding along streams and rivers.

Araksya Karapetyan tweeted the thumbnail photo on Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012, saying, "The rain is coming down hard! Busted these out this morning- haven't put them on since last year in Portland!"
