METEOROLOGIST MELISSA FREY’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
The countdown to the end of this extended dry break is down to less than 60 hours.
The ridge of high pressure that has been blocking the Pacific Northwest from any major storm activity is beginning to break down as an area of low pressure pushes into the central Pacific. Wednesday and Thursday will be the last two sunny, dry, warm days that we”ll see for at least the next 7-days, and possibly much longer.
A series of fronts will start to roll in Friday. The first one will actually be pretty weak by the time it gets here, and we’re going to miss the brunt of it. The coast will be the first to see any rain Friday afternoon, followed by the valley Friday evening. Showers will continue off and on Saturday morning. High temperatures will drop from the low 70s where we’ll be for Wednesday and Thursday, to the mid to upper 60s.
Sunday early morning is shaping up to be dry for the most part, but Sunday afternoon and all day Monday are looking pretty soggy as two moisture packed fronts move through.
Dust off those umbrellas!
