  - A series of atmospheric rivers will bring periods of
    widespread heavy rain through early next week. Cascade snow
    accumulations through Saturday morning will experience heavy
    rain Saturday night into Sunday morning which will contribute
    to excessive run off. Total rain amounts for the entire
    weekend range between 3.0-5.0 inches along the coast, 4.5-6.5
    inches over the Willapa Hills and Oregon Coast Range, and 3-4
    inches across the interior lowlands, with 4.0-7.0 inches of
    rain expected over the Cascades, Cascade foothills, and
    western Columbia River Gorge. 2.5-3.5 inches of rain is
    expected for central Columbia River Gorge and Upper Hood
    River Valley. Localized heavy rain will lead to higher rain
    totals.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible Flood
Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared
to take action should flooding develop. Given the aforementioned
rainfall amounts expected this weekend, river levels will be rising
quickly. Most rivers have anywhere from a 30-50% chance of reaching
at least minor flood stage, except the mainstem Columbia and
Willamette Rivers which is less than 10% chance. Coastal rivers
however have a 40-60% chance of reaching minor flood stage and
20-30% chance for reaching major.
