Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
Quiet for most of the day but the next (and last of the week) system is working down across Western WA tonight. Some light showers will start to spread south in the overnight hours through most of the day on Friday. Lows tonight will fall into the mid to upper 30s.
As the storm heads south through the state, expect more light scattered showers across the valley and coast, with about 1-3″ of snow above 2500 feet in the Cascades. The showers and snow showers should be wrapped up fairly quickly into Friday night. Highs will be again in the upper 40s to low 50s for one more day tomorrow.
Most of the weekend looks dry for now with high pressure moving back into the picture. A storm briefly clips the southern coastline Saturday into Sunday but I don’t think it’ll have any influence in our area. However, as high pressure starts to move back in, that’ll get the valley fog machines firing up again with the coast and mountains likely seeing more sunshine by the weekend. Overnights will also cool under (hopefully) clear skies and dip into the upper 20s this weekend and most of next week.
Have a great Thursday night!
