High pressure moves into the area today and tomorrow which will allow fog to form and linger, it may be dense at times, something to keep in mind while driving. Leave extra time to drive slowly and safely and keep your headlights on so that other drivers can see you more easily. In the afternoon some areas will clear enough of the fog and clouds out to see the sunshine return!
Starting Friday we’ll have a front approach our area which will be bringing widespread rain to the region with heavy rain falling at times. This is the first of several systems moving through our area next week which will keep the rain falling and the winds blowing. Strongest winds will be at the coast, ridges and east of the Cascades, with breezy conditions at the lower elevations. While the first system will produce widespread rain, snow levels will start to lower by Monday bringing snow to the higher elevations. As of now it looks like we will remain in a wet pattern through much of next week, keep that in mind when making travel plans and drive safely!
