Classic April

Posted by Rufus La Lone on

Friday April 12
Well, our previous forecast sure was wrong for western WA the past few days; let’s hope the models and the interpreter do better this time.  At least the morn’n coffee is hot.
A Low off the southern coast of OR is slowly moving south, wrapping moisture northward, so expect some precip over OR today, and chance for a few thunderstorms from Eugene south on into Saturday.  NW WA & BC will catch the break from rain; California will not.  It will be warmer, too, around the PNW given that southerly flow aloft.  Sunday looks dry & mild.
Next week will present another COLD Low moving down the BC coast, so expect showers & CHILLY temps later Mon & Tue.  Snow level could drop to 2,000 ft.  Clearing by Wed morning, with a risk for FROST, should the sky clear in your area.  An east wind will pick-up mid-week, esp through the Columbia River Gorge.  Late week, temps will warm quickly (Spring again!), with increasing cloudiness by Sat and the chance for a warm stray shower here & there.  Overall, though, next weekend is trending quite MILD & mostly dry.
“Earth Day” - Mon Apr 22 - is looking warm, with temps in the 70s in many locations; as is Tue the 23rd.  However, the whole pattern shifts again back to cold & wet on Wed Apr 24.  Showers & cool Thu.  Friday that week is trending warmer with clearing.  The last weekend of April may be cool & damp (same for CA).
Overall, classic April wx appears on tap for the balance of the month - a few warm afternoons, with plenty of sunshine, mixed in with a few damp, cool afternoons.
