Increasing Clouds Saturday & Showers

video preview image

Onshore flow will bring showers later this evening to the Coast and possibly the Cascades, but most other areas will be too dry for any precipitation to fall. Mostly cloudy to partly cloudy skies are in the forecast this evening across the region. Tomorrow a weak cold front will be moving in from our West. Precipitation will begin along the Coast early afternoon and spread further inland throughout the day. Snow levels are going to be around 4000′ but through the overnight hours, once the cooler air has made it’s way inland they will drop to about 2500′. At this point, very little moisture will be left with the system so showers will be light and isolated. For this reason, I am expecting very light accumulations above 2500′ im those locations that do see a passing shower. The Cascades could see 1″-2″.

It’s possible a stray shower develops into Sunday morning but by midday weak high pressure will begin building into the Northwest and partly sunny skies will return. Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 50’s and more seasonable compared to the mild conditions we’ve seen all week long. Monday evening into Tuesday is when our next storm system will move in. This disturbance will bring heavy precipitation to the region through Wednesday.
