Meteorologist Marisa Woloszyn’s Forecast Discussion:
The Jet Stream continues to carry moist subtropical air into the Pacific Northwest from Hawaii. With additional instability from a surface low near the Washington coast, heavy rain showers will spread across the area Sunday night accompanied by gusty winds along the coast.
Shower become a bit more isolated on Monday for lower elevation, but will continue to be scattered along higher elevations due to orographic lift. High temperatures will be mild in the low to mid 60s.
Another surge of moisture pushes through the area Tuesday and Wednesday bringing another round of heavy showers. Inland areas can expect another 1-2″ or rainfall, while the coast and mountains could receive 4″-7″ of rainfall. Rivers are currently well below flood stage, but this next surge of rain fall may push rivers up to their banks.
Showers will wrap up throughout the day Thursday as the disturbance moves off to the east; we will have a dry period Thursday afternoon through Friday before the showers return next weekend. High temps will be in the mid to upper 50s.
Have a “Wicked” Week!
