PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Forecasters say the weekend ice in the Columbia River Gorge is being replaced by freezing rain Monday morning as the temperature warms, and it will soon be followed by plain old rain and plenty of it.

The National Weather Service says a series of Pacific storms will hit the Northwest this week with a total of 2-to-4 inches of rain by Thursday in the lowlands of northwest Oregon and southwest Washington.

Higher rainfall in the Coast Range and Cascades may cause flooding later this week on some streams and rivers.
