The end of the month is not going to bring any relief to the water-logged Pacific Northwest. The storm train is forecast to continue to fire up in the Pacific Ocean and move through the region as the month of January comes to a close. Here is what you need to know about the upcoming soggy weather pattern in this corner of the U.S.

Wet January Marches on in the Northwest

It has already been an unseasonably wet month for much of the Pacific Northwest. The upcoming forecast is indicating that this pattern will linger as the calendar flips to February. Some parts of the region will end up with over a foot of rain for the month by the time the next system moves through.

The relentless storms will create the risk of flooding through the next week thanks to an atmospheric river that will stretch from the Pacific Ocean and into British Columbia, Canada and the Northwest. This atmospheric river will usher in a steady stream of moisture in the coming days, resulting in rainfall that could exceed a foot in the hardest-hit areas.
