StormTracker 9 Forecast Discussion
It is a foggy start to the morning on Friday along the coast and in the interior valleys. Clouds will slowly build into the region throughout the day as a cold front comes ashore this evening. This front will bring a period of rain and mountain snow, before becoming more showery overnight. Cool air aloft in the atmosphere will trigger instability on Saturday bringing more shower and the possibility of thunderstorms and small hail. Snow levels on Saturday will sit around 2,000 feet with 3 to 5 inches of snow expected in the Cascades. Sunday will be overall drier, but a few showers are possible in the morning, especially along the coast. Next week will remain active with several fronts moving through the Pacific Northwest.
Have a great weekend!
