Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
After a stormy weekend of heavy rain, mountain snow, hurricane force winds along the coast and very breezy conditions inland, all is back to normal, at least normal for this year.
Monday is the transition day between low and high pressure. We started the day with some left over cloud cover and patchy fog, along with wet roadways, but the clouds will break up and we’ll stay dry. Highs will get back to the low 50s.
High pressure will set up shop this week over the Pacific Northwest which means we’ll stay storm free and under mostly clear skies. Those clear skies mean chilly nights, especially in the valley where we’ll drop slightly below freezing for the next four nights. Fog will form before sunrise each night and we’ll be lucky to see much clearing into the afternoon. This will keep high temperatures in the mid 40s.
It will look completely different along the coast. Any fog will clear quickly and highs will return to the upper 50s with lows in the mid 30s. The Cascades will also be warm this week with highs in the mid to upper 40s. The warm, dry conditions will unfortunately chip away at the 1-2 feet of snow that fell this weekend.
The only shot at rain in the next seven day stretch is a very week storm that may bring in a few light showers Saturday.
Have a great start to your week!
