Rain & Chilly Air On The Way

Justin’s Monday Night Forecast Discussion: 

All quiet overnight tonight as we wrap up the one for-sure dry day today. Skies will stay cloudy and fog fills in where the clouds aren’t and I’m expecting lows to dip into the low 40s at the coast and upper 30s inland.

Tomorrow starts off dry but a cold front will swing through at the coast by lunchtime and inland in the afternoon. We’ll hang onto scattered showers for the rest of the day and most of Wednesday. But its what’s coming behind the front is what you’ll notice as chilly Arctic air takes hold of the Northwest over the remainder of the week.  Highs will fall back into the mid and likely lower 40s by Thursday. We’ll hang onto scattered showers for Wednesday and snow levels will drop to near 2500 feet. Pass level snow may be close to 2-4″ with about an inch in the higher end of the foothills.

Showers break up for Thursday and most of Friday but there’s another strong storm in the wings for Saturday and most of the weekend. The cold air in place will keep snow lines at around 3000 feet so plenty of new snow for the ski resorts and a soggy weekend for just about everyone else.

Have a great Tuesday!
