The month of March weather will definitely not go out like a lamb across the West Coast. The last week of the month will bring a continuation of the wet and snowy weather pattern for this part of the country.

Read on for more information about what you can expect in the coming days out on the West Coast.

Wet Weekend Weather Forecast Will Linger Into Next Week for Much of the West Coast

After enjoying a pleasant weekend weather forecast last week, the West Coast has seen anything but that this past weekend. An active weather pattern settled over the Pacific Northwest and to the south for the first week of spring. For instance, Saturday's weather forecast brought a rainout to the Seattle area with persistent showers ruining outdoor plans across the region.

The higher elevations of the region saw precipitation in the form of snow. The heavily traveled Snoqualmie Pass along Interstate 90 in Washington had to deal with a mix of rain and snow throughout the weekend as temperatures bounced around in the mid 30s to the mid 40s.

The Sierra Nevada snow totals also picked up a good amount over the weekend. The town of Truckee, California was under the threat of sporadic snow showers, adding to the already impressive snowpack for the month.

The weekend weather maker out West pushed to the east by Sunday, bringing blizzard conditions to the northern Plains and severe storms for the southern flank of the system. However, another storm system is setting up to impact the West into the early part of the new work week.
