METEOROLOGIST MARISA WOLOSZYN’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Heavy showers will continue Friday night as a cold front swings through; snow lines will drop to 3,500 feet and 2 inches of snow can be expected.
Once the front pushes through showers will diminish. Most of Saturday will be mostly cloudy with a few showers popping up. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 50s. Another storm quickly moves in Saturday evening, bringing heavy rain showers and cranking up the wind. The heaviest rain will be overnight Saturday with snow above 4,000 feet. Winds will be strongest along the coast, with gusts 50-60 mph; slightly weaker winds will be expected inland with gusts 30-40 mph. As the center of the storm moves overhead overnight, it could create enough instability to pop a few thundershowers, especially over the Cascades.
The heaviest showers and strongest winds will end by Sunday afternoon, but isolated showers will continue through Monday. High temperatures will be slightly below average in the mid 50s.
Have a Wonderful Weekend!
