Inch of rain forecast this weekend at Oso mudslideApril 4, 2014 @ 5:36 am
SEATTLE (AP) -- About an inch of rain is forecast this weekend at the Oso mudslide where a few dry days this week have helped searchers looking for bodies from the March 22 landslide.
The National Weather Service says steady rain could cause the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River to rise by about half a foot by Sunday morning.
The rain and rising river complicate recovery work in the debris field and add to the flooding caused when the landslide partially blocked the river. Melting mountain snow from rising temperatures also may cause the river to rise.
Forecasters expect warmer, drier weather across Washington early next week.
