The National Weather Service says the Pacific Northwest should prepare for wind, rain, flooding and snow this week.

A series of three storm systems will pass though the region starting Tuesday and last through the weekend.

The weather service advises people to trim trees to avoid falling branches that could cause power outages.

Snow may begin on the passes by Tuesday afternoon. A few inches of snow could fall above 4,000 feet in the North Cascades starting Wednesday and create travel problems.

The weekend should see another storm that could cause flooding.

Officials say cleaning fallen leaves out of storm drains will help prevent some flooding.

Fall Weather Pattern Arrives

Rain and much cooler temperatures behind a cold front will bring a feeling of fall to the east coast today. In addition, an active fall storm pattern developing in the Pacific Northwest this week will bring areas of heavy rains, and very high elevations could receive heavy snow. Wetting rains to the valley floors will spread south Thu and Fri into northern California,where active fires continue
