Friday February 4
A half-cup update today because there isn’t much change in the outlook for the next couple of weeks.
Some precip today across the Puget Sound and northern Cascades, with a few showers possible in western OR. The next time we get a chance for showers will be late Sunday or early Monday Feb 6,7 — even then, the precip may be mainly north of Everett.
High pressure will continue to block wet Pacific storms, and a ‘continental’ ridge will drop in east of the mountains sometime next weekend, so expect the areas of fog to be cleared with afternoon sunshine. Columbia Gorge wind, from the east, will be notable, as well (Feb 12,13).
Colder temps and a decent rain, with mountain snow, is charting for roughly Wed & Thu Feb 16,17. Valentine’s Day could usher in a few showers in western OR, but that is iffy.
Overall: a rather bland, DRY pattern on tap for the next 12 days.
