After an unusually dry February in the Pacific Northwest, March will begin on a soggy note in many places. A potent disturbance pushing into the region this weekend will spread rain and some snow from Washington and Oregon to Montana and Wyoming.
Although dry weather will prevail for the first half of Saturday, a stream of moisture will allow for rain by the end of the day from Portland to Seattle.
While many locales will have a wet weekend, the heaviest rain is expected to be confined to Vancouver Island. Wet weather has plagued the region the past couple of days and at least 3 inches of rain can fall through the weekend in parts of the island.
Farther south, up to an inch of rain can wet the Washington coast. Wind gusts to 40 mph will also whip coastal sections of the region through the weekend.
