A cold front is driving an atmospheric river through our region this morning, bringing widespread rain and mild temperatures. We’ll probably deal with a few hours of moderate to heavy rain during the morning commute, which will lead to pooling and ponding on area roads. The cold front will slide through by the mid to late morning, with rain ending from north to south. It’ll turn out to be a pretty nice afternoon under partly to mostly sunny skies. High temps will end up in the upper 50s. Our air will remain pretty humid through tonight, so patchy fog, low clouds and areas of drizzle are expected.
Another weather system will bring rainy conditions to western Washington on Tuesday. The Portland/Vancouver metro area will be on the southern end of this system, so cloudy skies and a few light showers are possible. Points to the south of the metro area should stay mainly dry. Highs will reach the mid 50s due to the cloudier skies Tuesday.
High pressure will take a hold of our weather pattern between mid to late week. Expect mainly dry weather and cooling temperatures toward the end of the week. Highs will dip into the upper 40s and low 50s by Friday and Saturday, with overnight lows falling into the 30s. Our next chance of rain will arrive sometime between late Sunday and early Monday.
Have a great start to your week!
