A dry slot in the overhead moisture allowed for a beautiful and warm Memorial Day. Some showers were present at the coast and in the Cascades, however the majority of the moisture stayed to our north. Partly cloudy skies and cooler temperatures will be the story for Tuesday. A weak cold front pass overnight on Sunday allowing for clouds to increase in the region. The upper level low pressure is slowly tracking down the coast and will send in another frontal boundary into the overnight hours of Tuesday. Chances of rain will increase in the Cascades late Tuesday. Isolated showers will then become more widespread through the day on Wednesday. The only location not expected to see showers this week are the Basin and Northern California.
Temperatures will once again cool off Wednesday after the passage of the frontal boundary. Snow levels will drop down to 5,500′ by Wednesday morning. The extreme upper elevations of the Cascades could get a rain/snow mixture, however no accumulation is expected as even low period temperature will be above freezing. Thursday will bring another ridge of high pressure and will allow for skies to clear and temperatures to warm up. This will be the trend through the end of the week.
Thanks for logging on and have a great Memorial Day!
