Tacoma’s Schuster Parkway was back open to traffic Sunday after a mudslide forced its closure Saturday.

Elsewhere on Sunday, crews worked to clean up the playing field at Tacoma’s Stadium Bowl, which was flooded during the same storm that dumped heavy rain on parts of Pierce County on Saturday.

The National Weather Service reported that an inch of rain fell on the Key Peninsula community of Vaughn between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday. Heavy downpours were reported elsewhere in the Tacoma area.

Parts of Interstate 705 at South 11th Street that were closed because of flooding on Saturday also were reopened Sunday.

The weather service called for a chance of rain during the day on Monday, increasing to a 70 percent chance by Monday night, with highs in the mid-60s.

Foggy mornings are forecast for the rest of the work week, with a chance of rain on Tuesday and Saturday.
