SEATTLE (AP) -- As utilities completed repairs Thursday to the latest wind-caused power outages in Western Washington, forecasters said the breezy wet weather would continue with snow in the mountains and parts of Eastern Washington.

Wednesday's storm left power crews busy in parts of Grays Harbor County, the San Juan Islands, Snohomish, and Thurston counties and the city of Seattle.

The National Weather Service says the series of Pacific storms would continue blowing into the state into next week, with a possible lull on Sunday.

After heavy snow in the Cascades, the Transportation Department required traction tires Thursday morning on Snoqualmie, Stevens and White passes.

Forecasters warned of flooding on the Bogachiel and Satsop rivers.
