Cool Then Sun Then Thunderstorms

This evening there is some weak instability in the Cascades and further east meaning we could hear a little thunder, but once the sun sets the threat for thunderstorms goes with it. Tomorrow will be more of the same with a slight chance for thunder late in the afternoon and evening along and east of the Cascades. Most areas will see morning clouds and some marine layer fog at the coast then more afternoon sunshine. The upper level low that has brought the cooler weather and this chance for thunderstorms will be exiting our region tomorrow night and high pressure will rebuild briefly Friday. Friday and Saturday will be much warmer with mostly sunny conditions, but this warm-up is short lived.

Saturday evening another upper-low will settle over the Pacific Northwest bringing in cooler temperatures into next week, isolated evening thunderstorms for Father’s Day and Monday and showers. Thunderstorms on Sunday will be relatively dry whereas Monday we’ll see showers across the region and isolated showers continue into Tuesday.

With thunderstorms in the forecast keep fire safety in mind, fire danger is still at moderate and you can find a full list of the regulations in place under the weather links. Thanks for logging on and have a great evening!
