Meteorologist Marisa Woloszyn’s Forecast Discussion:
A strong upper level low continues to influence our weather Saturday night. Rain shower will continue across the entire area with snow showers above 3,500 ft; new snow accumulation will be around 1-3″.
Showers will be isolated to scattered for the first part of Sunday, before the next front approaches in the afternoon. This front will bring heavy rain, strong winds and more snow to the higher terrain. Wind gusts will be near 50 mph along the coast and 30 mph inland.
Winds will be even stronger Monday as a jet maximum sets up over the Pacific Northwest; sustained winds along the coast will be 30-40 mph with gusts possible 55-70 mph. Winds will be slightly weaker inland with sustained winds 15-20 mph and gust 30-40 mph. Another slow moving front swings through Monday, as well; precipitation values will be around 1-1.5 inches. Minor flooding will be a concern for creeks and rivers, along with puddling on the roadways.
More disturbances move through during the rest of the week, however they will be weaker and we should see a few more sunbreaks. Temperatures for the forecast period will be in the low to mid 50s.
Have a super soggy Sunday!
