There will be a piece of the upper-level atmospheric energy that swings through on Friday. This will cause an increase in shower activity. The snow level will be rather close to valley floor on Friday morning as temperatures will be near freezing. It will be possible to see a few flakes (but no promises). Right now, little to no accumulation is expected.

Isolated showers will likely continue Friday afternoon as the warm front of the next mid-latitude cyclone moves ashore. Snow levels will likely rise to near 2,000 feet by the afternoon and will continue to rise to 5,500 feet by Sunday as milder air moves into the region.

The next mid-latitude cyclone comes ashore on Saturday, bringing another burst of rain and mountain snow. The higher elevations of the Cascades will likely pick up another foot of snow with this system. The rest of the weekend will be rather quiet. The next storm system will bring more rain and mountain snow on Tuesday.
