CHIEF METEOROLOGIST JUSTIN STAPLETON’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Clouds continue to stream in overnight with some occasional sprinkles (mainly at the coast) but they’ll pick up as we head into early Thursday morning. Lows with the warm front still moving in will stay in the 50s by daybreak. Some light showers may already be hitting the coast by sunrise.
Thursday brings in the first of a series of storms that returns our weather pattern back to a more typical one for this time of year: cooler, with scattered showers and mountain snow. Showers will break out in the morning hours with a steadier rain by afternoon and evening. As the low slides up the coastline, I’m expecting some gusty winds along the coast, around the 35-40 mph range. Highs with the rain will be in the mid to low 60s.
Showers will continue on and off Friday through most of the weekend. By Saturday, highs will only be in the upper 50s and snow lines falling down close to Pass level. Ski resorts will enjoy some fresh late season powder, but the early run of late spring weather will be at an end for the rest of us. There’s a chance next week’s storm heads further north and misses us on Monday. Otherwise, it looks like we’ll have to wait until about Wednesday for some significant drier weather.
Have a great Thursday!
