CHIEF METEOROLOGIST JUSTIN STAPLETON’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
More of the same overnight tonight with showers in Washington and NW Oregon, cloudy skies elsewhere with lows again on the mild side, only falling into the upper to mid 40s. Some drizzle along the coast is also likely at times through the morning hours.
Tomorrow through Thursday, the pattern doesn’t change much: mostly cloudy with a mild, humid airmass rolling into the state. A ridge of high pressure will remain planted off the Northern California coast which will concentrate showers and mountain peak snow mainly in Western Washington and Northern Oregon. Temperatures will stay mild as well, with widespread mid to upper 60s tomorrow and Thursday.
Late Thursday night into Friday morning, a weak cold front will brush across the state bringing some light showers with it. None of these will be very strong any many folks may not see any showers at all. Into the weekend, temperatures cool down just a bit, back down into the mid to upper 50s and another brief shot at rain on Sunday. Otherwise, it’s going to be a very mild and quiet middle of March. A stronger storm brings down the temps and snow lines by Wednesday.
Have a great Wednesday!
