CHIEF METEOROLOGIST JUSTIN STAPLETON’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Clouds increasing throughout the night tonight ahead of a wave that will bring some steady rain starting in the early morning hours Friday and slowly taper off into scattered showers by late evening. The day will start off fairly wet for the morning commute but by late afternoon, we’ll see some sun breaks along with showers. Highs will be slightly cooler with the clouds and rain, back down into the upper 50s.
The rain will wrap up by Saturday morning and skies eventually start to clear by the evening. Highs will slowly move back into the low 60s. By Sunday, high pressure starts to move into the Northwest and take hold into next week. Monday will be the transitional day with highs approaching 70 in some spots but the real warm up is the days following.
In fact, we’re looking at a nice warm up into possibly the mid to upper 70s by Tuesday and Wednesday. It will feel almost early summer-like by this time next week! With the rush of warm air coming, snow lines will likely soar above 10,000 feet, likely putting an official end to the ski season.
Have a great Friday!
