Residents across the Pacific Northwest cleaned up the muck and mess left by heavy rains and flooding that are blamed for three deaths, and forecasters said more rain is on the way.

A storm system was expected to move in Sunday night but was not expected to be as dramatic as storms last week. Forecasters said there is little chance of more flooding; most of the precipitation is expected to fall as snow in the Cascade Mountains and could add up to t0 inches.

The National Weather Service reported that more than an inch of rain is expected for the Puget Sound area.

Oregon was expecting strong winds and possibly heavy rain. National Weather Service forecasters in Portland are concerned the wind will knock down trees standing in saturated soil.
