Mostly sunny skies and dry conditions will be the story for today, but as we head into the overnight hours things start to change. We’ll move some clouds into the region with a chance for rain in the afternoon at the coast and in the early evening through Saturday morning for inland areas. Winds will also pick up, especially, east of the Cascades tomorrow due to the passing front. Similar to last weekend, most of Saturday and Sunday will be dry, but the chance for showers will return Sunday late afternoon into Monday morning. This is all due to a week cold front passing through on Friday, however, as we head into next week a good chance for some decent rain moves into the region.
The jetstream will shift south bringing in much cooler temperatures next week as well as several chances for rain through midweek with snow likely at the higher elevations. Due to warm soils, not expecting accumulation on mountain passes, but the peaks could turn white after the entire event is over. Any snow chances will hold off until next week, I am only expecting rain during the weekend.
So get your winter clothes ready, I know I will, as next week is going to be chilly across the area! Remember to like me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter for more weather information and to tweet with me during the morning show! Have a great day!
