Rain, wind and lots more rain is forecast this weekend as the first major fall storms move through Oregon.

The National Weather Service is predicting "a series of very potent early fall storms." It says up to 2 inches of rain will fall before daybreak Saturday, with the heaviest amounts in the Coast Range.

A stronger storm that contains moisture from a spent typhoon will bring even more rain during the day and Saturday night, accompanied by high winds on the coast and gusts in the valley.

Another, even stronger storm, is predicted to move through Sunday. Rainfall totals could reach 7 to 10 inches in the mountains and 2 to 4 inches in the valley, the weather service says.

Streams and rivers may overflow. Soil will be saturated, so there may be mud slides. The winds could knock down trees or branches, leading to power outages.

The good news: Temperatures are predicted to remain in the 50s and 60s, without dropping below 52 overnight. Rain will taper off Monday, with only chances of showers expected the rest of the week.
