A cold front that is sweeping south and east today across the forecast area will usher cooler air into the Pacific Northwest. Temperatures across our forecast area will be a full 10-15 degrees cooler than the weekend. Skies will be mostly to partly cloudy across the region with most of the shower activity being light and confined to the Coastline.
Tuesday a second disturbance will follow, moving in straight from the North by late afternoon. This system will bring a better chance for showers for inland areas and also drop our snow levels. By Wednesday morning, snow levels will be near 4,500’ so overnight showers will be in the form of snow above this elevation.
The sun returns on Wednesday, but even so cooler temperatures are here to stay through the extended forecast. Each time our temperatures gradually warm toward normal values, another upper level disturbance moves in to knock them back down. Friday will be the warmest day of the week before another system moves through bringing cloud cover and another chance for wet weather.
