A cold front will be moving through the Northwest this evening bringing with it the chance for showers across the region. Winds will pick up along the Coast and light showers will begin following midnight, eventually moving further inland. Snow levels will be dropping from 4,500′ to about 3,500′ by Monday morning, so the Cascades will be seeing 2″-4″ of snow & the Siskiyous up to 1.” About 1″ is expected East of the Cascades this evening as well. With the melting that occurred this afternoon, and the additional snowfall, roads are going to be slick the next several mornings in the mountain passes and those roadways that saw snow from Friday night’s storm.

Showers will continue into the day tomorrow for most areas. The snow level will be down to about 3,000′ by Monday morning in the Valley, however all showers will most likely be rain. An area of high pressure will build into the region as Tuesday nears and remain in control through Friday. By the end of the week temperatures will warm to the mid 60’s in the Valleys! Saturday evening will be the next chance for wet weather.
