After several days of cloudy days in the Western Valleys, the skies cleared; and sunshine appeared nicely for those seeking the feel good light of that “Yellow Orb in the Sky”.
With clearing skies, areas of fog will form…and become locally dense in spots…in the overnight hours this weekend. Some freezing fog is possible as well, so drivers should be cautious over the bridges and overpasses.
Pollution levels have remained relatively good in the Western Valleys, but east of the cascades–moderate to sensitive levels have been recorded for several days. The inversion is still present (even with the absence of low clouds), so pollution levels will likely rise through Monday, before improving during the middle of next week.
Showers and some steady rain and mountain snow will return Thursday and Friday…with snow levels falling to around 2,000 to 2,500 feet.
