CHIEF METEOROLOGIST JUSTIN STAPLETON’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
A mix of clouds and some clearing tonight, possbily a late sprinkle but overall a quiet end to our Wednesday. With the addition of clouds tonight, lows should hold in the upper 30s and low 40s for Thursday morning. By the afternoon, there’s a slight chance for some light showers mainly in the northern end of the valley and coast. Highs will be similar to Wednesday, sitting near 60 in the valley, mid 60s as you head down the I-5.
A stronger wave moves in on Friday bringing widespread rain early, tapering to scattered showers by late afternoon and evening. 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. And that’s the end of the rain (for a while anyway.) By Sunday, high pressure starts to move into the Northwest and take hold into next week. In fact, we’re looking at a nice warm up into possibly the low to mid 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, possibly putting an official end to the extended ski season at all resorts.
Have a great Thursday!
