Showers Taper Off Sunday Afternoon

Tonight through tomorrow morning some areas, especially the Cascades, will see periods of steady showers. This may impact travel over the Cascade passes with snow covered roads and reduced visibilities, though the heavies precipitation has exited our region. Snow levels will drop to 3,000 feet by Sunday morning and only rise slightly through the day.

Shower activity will decrease through the day on Sunday with most areas but the higher elevations dry by the afternoon with more sunshine. We remain in an active weather pattern as a longwave trough sits over the Pacific Northwest, this means a chance for showers will be present each day though most activity will be light and isolated through midweek. Wednesday will be the driest day of the week with the most sunshine before a cold front arrives on Thursday bringing another chance for widespread showers across the region and periods of moderate rain at the coast and Cascades. Friday will bring another brief break in shower activity with another round of rain likely Saturday.

Temperatures will also remain at or below normal into next weekend with cold mornings across the region. Areas of morning frost are possible for west side valleys through the week with patchy fog as well.
