METEOROLOGIST MELISSA FREY’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
A perfect spring Friday: Crisp morning but warm afternoon, sunny and dry. Hopefully you get the chance to enjoy it today, because we’re going to take a flash back to winter this weekend!
An area of low pressure is developing quite nicely in the Gulf of Alaska. This storm storm will drop from the north this weekend, dropping our temperatures quite significantly.
The clouds will start to increase Friday afternoon ahead of a cold front that will move in early Saturday morning. Most of the action with this storm will be to the north of us, but we’ll still see mostly cloudy skies and a few scattered showers Saturday. High temperatures will fall to teh mid 50s with lows to the mid to upper 30s Saturday night.
The showers will continue Sunday and Monday as the area of low pressure moves east. High temperatures will continue to stay cool, in the low 50s Sunday and Monday. The snow level will drop to about 2,500 feet Saturday night and will stay below 3,500 feet through Tuesday morning. This means another round of snow across the Cascades and down into the higher foothills.
By Tuesday this storm will be on to the east and we’ll be back to mostly sunny and dry weather through Thursday. Highs will climb back the low 60s Wednesday and Thursday.
Have a great weekend!!
