Today our next storm system will begin approaching coastal waters. A warm front from this area of low pressure is lifting north currently and this is bringing a few showers to the coast. Showers will turn to rain here this afternoon and tonight when this front travels inland, it could fall heavy at times.
Inland, skies will remain partly to mostly cloudy. This evening around 7 o’clock rain showers will begin developing across the Valley ahead of the front. As it drives inland tonight we will then see rain spread eastbound. Early Friday rain will be falling across West Side Valleys. It will be ongoing through much of the day.
As far as Trick-or-Treat is concerned, showers are likely west of the Cascades and rain east. Roads and sidewalks are going to be wet with puddles all over so keep those feet warm! Dress to stay warm and to stay dry!
This cold front will bring in the coldest air mass we’ve seen so far this fall. Snow levels will drop Friday afternoon and will reach 4,500′-5,000′ by Saturday morning. Snow showers are likely above this elevation into the weekend. A couple inches will fall across the high country and if you’re planning to head over the higher passes through this time frame make sure to check TripCheck and look at the roads.
Showers on Saturday will taper off through the day. Sunday will feature dry weather but cooler temperatures. The whole weekend will stay cool from the new air mass moving in. It does appear another weaker system will approach the area next week.
