Rain and snow to pound the Northwest through Thanksgiving

Rain and snow to pound the Northwest through Thanksgiving Rain and mountain snow will pound the Northwest this Thanksgiving week, a report from AccuWeather said.

A string of storms is expected to dump rain the region starting Tuesday almost daily until the weekend.

“For the major cities of the I-5 corridor, it will not be cold enough for snow accumulation, however the rain will be rather constant this coming week,” AccuWeather meteorologist Evan Duffey said in the report.

The foul weather is forecast to fall on Seattle and Olympia in Washington; and Portland and Medford in Oregon.

“Tuesday afternoon is probably the worst time to try to get out of the Pacific Northwest for Thanksgiving as (visibility) will be lowest due to low clouds, fog and periods of heavier rain,” Duffey added.

Flash floods are also forecast to descend on the affected areas as a result of the heavy downpour.

The report also said that majority of the storms in the region are expected to travel south to cause showers to San Francisco, and snow to Sierra Nevada.
