High pressure is still parked over the area promoting sunny skies and warm afternoon temperatures. The good news is this trend will stick around for the Pear Blossom Festival tomorrow. We will start off the morning in the mid 40s so a light jacket will be needed. However, when the sun comes up, the lack of cloud coverage will allow for the temperatures to warm up quickly. Sunscreen and sunglasses will be needed.
The high pressure ridge is breaking down and by Tuesday clouds will have started moving in allowing for moisture to enter the area. Showers will start at the coast and the Cascades overnight on Tuesday ahead of a weak cold front. The heaviest amount of precipitation will move in on Wednesday and Thursday. A series of cold fronts will pass our area allowing for temperatures to drop down to seasonal average. Snow levels should remain high and snow is not expected to be a factor with this system.
Thanks for logging on and Enjoy the Pear Blossom Festival!
