Dry and calm weather will be hard to come by in the Pacific Northwest through at least next week.

“Storminess returned to the Northwest on Wednesday, and that trend will continue right into next week,” said AccuWeather Meteorologist Ryan Adamson.

“The system that brought rain and mountain snow on Wednesday will continue to bring precipitation to Washington, Oregon, and Northern California [into Friday night].”

A short-lived reprieve from the unsettled weather will grace a few locations as one storm moves out and another approaches.

In Portland and Seattle, this dry period is only expected to span the first half of the day on Saturday. That afternoon, a fresh round of breezy, wet weather will begin to move onshore.

Later in the weekend, more widespread precipitation and disruptive winds are in store.

“A stronger system will push ashore Sunday night into Monday, with heavy rain along the coast and heavy snow in the Cascades and down into Northern California,” Adamson said.

Travel is likely to be impacted again, with strong winds threatening airline delays and endangering high-profile vehicles.

“The barrage will continue with another storm barreling ashore Tuesday and Tuesday night,” said Adamson. “This storm will also bring heavy rain and mountain snow and has the potential to be a windier storm as well,” he added.

Feet of snow may pile up over the Cascades by the end of next week.

With little time allowed for drainage systems to catch up between downpours, the threat for localized flooding will increase through next week.
