Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
Big night tonight for astronomy buffs as a full lunar eclipse will be on display tonight with the partial starting at 10:58p and the full eclipse at its max around 12:46am. The question will be how much break in the clouds will be for later tonight. The best chances may be further south down the I-5 corridor, meanwhile, at the coast, folks better prepare to move inland to check out the “Blood Moon”.
Tomorrow and Wednesday will be a mix of clouds and peeks of sun, cooler with highs only topping out in the low 60s. There are a few small systems moving in from the Gulf of Alaska but neither will be very strong and most of the rainfall will stay north of the region. The coast and Cascades may see some light occasional showers either day, with best chances for the valleys to see some light showers overnight into Wednesday.
Strongest rain chances and the best looking cold front will move through Thursday. Snow lines will hover around 5000 feet as well, so a light slushy mix around the Passes is also a possibility. Early Friday may also see a light shower, but we should start moving into a drier forecast for Easter Weekend. Highs will be back into the mid to upper 60s and aside from some dew and light fog, Easter Sunday should be partly sunny with highs in the 60s!
Have a great Monday night!
