Over two and a half inches of rain have fallen in certain places along the Coast in the past 24 hours. Very light rain fell in the Valley’s, Mountains, and Basin since last night. Expect drier conditions as we head into the overnight hours for all areas with the exception of the Coast where some showers will linger.
By tomorrow all areas are in the clear, as sunny conditions are expected for much of the NW with weak high pressure building in. Temperatures will warm up about 10 degrees warmer than Thursday afternoon’s highs. This spring-like weather however will be short lived as another front will be on the horizon. Saturday will start off dry but increasing clouds will move in ahead of the next cold front. By Saturday evening rain will begin along the Coast and eventually make it’s way further inland. Snow levels will drop to about 3,000′, and in some locations they could drop lower but showers are expected to be light so this will cause minimal travel impacts into Sunday morning.
By Sunday afternoon the sun and clouds will return and remain through Monday. The models are in disagreement about a storm system pushing eastward Tuesday. As of now, it remains uncertain how strong the precipitation will be associated with this disturbance.
