Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Evening Forecast Discussion:
“Warmer” tonight as winds have switched, now coming in off the ocean so that means more cloud cover overnight and a weak cold front will bring some isolated showers through Thursday morning. However, it looks like the showers will taper off in time for trick or treating in the evening. Highs will be in the upper 50s again and sitting in the mid 50s come candy time!
Friday sees the return of mostly sunny skies and a bit warmer back into the upper 50s. However, it will be short lived as a potent storm system will fire through the Northwest late Friday night through Sunday. Saturday will likely be very wet at times and gusty along the coast with waves above 15-20 feet. In the mountains, Pass levels will see anywhere from 2-5″ of snow so it may be the first time to pull out the chains this weekend. Higher elevations may see up to 10+” by the end of the weekend!
The showers continue on and off through early next week as we settle into a more typical pattern for this time of year, with highs in the lower 50s and occasional sun breaks.
Have a great Thursday!
