Justin’s Tuesday Night Forecast Discussion:
Clouds are starting to break up after dinner tonight and the light, isolated showers should wind down overnight leaving some fog in the valley and a chilly start to Thursday with lows in the low 30s.
Thursday also sees a break from the rain and snow for everyone but it’ll be brief. Highs, with the cold air spilling in off the ocean, will struggle to stay in the low to mid 40s. Meaning also the newly fallen snow in the Cascades will also stay as snow lines will remain around 3000 feet. Overnight into Friday a weak cold front moves through bringing some light showers and snow in the mountains. That wave will taper off by Friday afternoon with some late day sun breaks.
There’s another strong storm in the wings for Saturday night into Sunday. The cold air in place will keep snow lines at around 2500 feet so plenty of new snow for the ski resorts and a soggy weekend for just about everyone else. Highs will hold in the mid 40s, 30s in the mountains. The strongest wave is likely coming in late Sunday into Monday. That one will bring some brief heavy rain, plenty of mountain snow and some breezy conditions at the coast. Right now it appears we’ll stay soggy going into next week.
Have a great Thursday!
