A stronger low-pressure system will bring more rain/snow chances to the region on Wednesday night. Snow levels will likely be around 1,500 to 2,000 feet as this storm moves through. This means the Cascades, foothills, and parts of the Coast Range could see more snow. The rest of us will likely see just a cold, wet night heading into Thursday.
Showers will continue on Thursday before slowing Thursday night between systems. The next round of rain will arrive on Friday night through Saturday. Saturday looks to be a rather wet day, but showers will likely end on Sunday morning.
