SEATTLE (AP) - After several mostly dry, clear days that allowed recovery workers to find more bodies in the Oso landslide, rain is forecast to return to Western Washington by the end of the week.

The National Weather Service says rain will begin on the coast Thursday and spread to the Cascades by Friday. A chance of showers continues through the weekend.

Forecasters say the dry weather the past couple of days will allow the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River to gradually fall, but rain could cause it to rise again in the slide area. Emergency responders have also said they’re concerned about melting mountain snow causing the river to rise in warming spring weather.
