Some places in Western Washington could get several inches of rain in the next few days as a series of Pacific storms blow into the state.
The storms could also bring up to a foot and a half of snow in parts of the Cascades.
The National Weather Service says a blustery storm Tuesday night will be followed by a weaker system Wednesday. After a break on Thursday, another strong system is expected Thursday night and Friday into a stormy weekend.
The pattern of valley rain and mountain snow will carry through Eastern Washington.
The heaviest snow is expected in the North Cascades with 8 to 18 inches by Wednesday at Mount Baker. Accumulations of 6 to 12 inches are expected at Stevens Pass and less than 6 at Snoqualmie Pass Wednesday.
