Monday March 4
So many places around the PNW experienced a bit of The White as March 2024 got started.  While we see a few warmer days on the charts, there are indications that the balance of ‘winter’ will remain on the chilly side.  The Spring Equinox is March 20.  Mug time is now.  
Chilly days this week, with the good news being that the moisture will slowly diminish, yielding crisp (hopefully sunny) afternoons mid-week.  Showers will slowly fade away, north-to-south, over the next 24 hrs.  Frosty mornings possible Wed & Thu, if the sky clears in your location.  Dry, except for a swath across southern OR on into ID, Tue through Fri.  Vancouver Is may get some cloudiness Fri.
The coming weekend will present more rain and warmer temps, with a southerly flow, as a cold front stretches out along the west coast, slowly moving onshore over BC and WA first on Sat, OR and east late Sunday.  The new round of colder air pooling over the eastern Pacific will work its way onshore, similar to last week, for increasing rain/showers and snow levels dropping below the passes.  While this event does not chart as cold as the last, it will be cold enough aloft for development of intense showers, possible small hail, and the need for a coat Mon - Wed, Mar 11-13.  What was earlier looking to be a warmer, multi-day dry spell late next week, is now looking rather damp, but still warmer.  A sunny day or two remains on the charts Fri & Sat, Mar 15,16, before COLD rain returns on St Patty’s Day.  
The week of Mar 18-22 is trending damp early, cool, then, SPRING-like mild for a couple days, starting with Spring Equinox.  We’ll see.
California will DRY OUT starting Wed Mar 13.  The dry weather should hold in the Golden State through at least Mar 22.  Seasonably warmer, which will help with Almond pollination.
