Justin’s Thursday Night Forecast Discussion:
Showers moving through overnight tonight with a slow moving front. I’d expect to see showers for just about everyone for the Friday morning commute as well. The good news is we won’t be dealing with freezing overnight lows with the clouds and warmer air moving in, lows should hold in the low 40s.
For the rest of the week and weekend, we’re back to a more typical pattern: Occasional showers and sun breaks with highs should return to near normal in the mid to upper 40s. Tomorrow is looking the wettest of the next couple of days but even then it’ll be showers with occasional breaks by the afternoon and some fresh powder across the Cascades. Both Saturday and Sunday will carry a chance for some showers but they’ll be light overall with some breaks by both afternoons. Highs will hang in the mid 40s and the cooler air spilling in will drop snow levels down to around 2500 feet. Not a lot of accumulating snow at that level but a quick inch isn’t out of the question and be ready for wintry driving over the passes.
The next ridge of high pressure will settle just offshore for early next week so it appears that we might go back to a drier pattern to wrap up the month. There’s a chance we’ll hang onto some showers on Monday but by Tuesday and into next week, I think we’ll actually see some nice partly sunny afternoons. Nice to see them back!
Have a great Friday!
