Sunday, January 17th, 4:00 A.M.
A weak cold front is sliding through the region, bringing light showers to northwest Oregon and southwest Washington. Showers will slowly taper off this morning, but clouds will likely linger through the mid to late afternoon. We’ll be lucky to catch some sunbreaks, but temperatures should still climb into the upper 40s and low 50s. Clearing skies tonight will promote the development of fog along the coast and across the interior valleys, so prepare for lower visibility on your Monday A.M. commutes.
Our weather should stay dry Tuesday and Wednesday, but high temperatures will slowly trend down into the 40s. Our next chance for showers will arrive sometime late Thursday and possibly linger into early Friday. Snow levels don’t look like they will be quite as low as previously thought. We could be a looking at freezing levels between 1,000-2,000 feet, but with little moisture around, snow accumulations will be light.
A few showers can’t be ruled Saturday either. If they occur early enough, it’s possible we see some mixed precipitation below 1,000 feet. A lot can change between now and then though, so stay tuned for adjustments to the forecast.
Have a great Sunday!
