Cool temperatures this morning are a sign of the approaching cold area of low pressure. Precipitation is moving onshore and snow chances pick up later in the morning and last through early evening. Accumulations by midnight are still in the 6-12 range, helped along by the high snow ratios due to the very cold air mass. Little or no rise in temperatures today, remaining in the teens. West to southwest winds to 20 mph with higher gusts, to 40 mph on the ridges with higher gusts.
A chance of a flurry on Wednesday morning then clouds decreasing. Lows in the upper single digits to mid teens, highs in the upper teens to mid 20s. Northeasterly ridge winds to 30 mph.
The models are weakening a system moving mostly through the Pacific Northwest on Thursday. For now, still a chance of snow showers, but no accumulations. Lows in the teens, highs in the 20s. Winds remaining northerly on the ridges.
Partly to mostly cloudy on Friday as another quick moving and relatively dry system approaches. A chance of snow showers overnight with little or no accumulations by sunrise Saturday. Lows in the teens to near 20, highs in the 20s to low 30s.
A quick shot of snow and snow showers on Saturday. At this time, accumulations are in the 2-4 inch range. We’ll see if this holds together or gets diverted more to our north and east and decreases accumulations. Temperatures dropping back into the 20s.
A break is expected on Sunday with the possibility of another weak system and snow showers on Monday.
