SEATTLE (AP) - Forecasters say an active fall weather pattern will bring wet and windy weather the next few days in parts of Washington and Oregon.

The Weather Service has issued a high wind warning from the central Oregon coast to southwest Washington from Tuesday afternoon to noon Wednesday for winds of 30-to-40 mph with gusts to 65. Inland western Oregon, including the Portland metro area, could feel gusts of 30-to-40 miles per hour. That could knock down trees, which still have most of their leaves.

Winds of 20-to-35 mph with gust to 45 are expected on the central and north Washington coast.

As much as 5 inches of rain are expected by Wednesday on the Olympics, which could cause the Skokomish River to flood. Heavy rain also is forecast in the Cascades.
