Monday October 2
<< Scroll below, after today's forecast, to read our Annular Solar Eclipse write-up.>>
Delightful weather remains on the charts. However, a short downturn will get this week started. Mug ☕️ time.
A fast moving front will usher in rain across much of the PNW over the next 24 hrs. The system will first dampen Vancouver Is, southern BC, NW WA and work its way south. Most of the precipitation today and early Tue will fall over SW WA and much of western OR - definitely more rain than original expectations. The good news is that a warm ridge of High pressure will rapidly build back in over the PNW, for a delightful stretch of mild October weather.
Expect sunny, dry conditions from later Tue through the coming weekend. In fact, temps could tease topping 80 in a few SW WA and western OR locations this Thu, Fri and Sat; 70s will prevail. Models hold off the next Pacific storm until overnight Sunday Oct 8. That storm will be a ‘drencher’ for Vancouver Is and NW WA, less so for western OR. Precip is not likely to across into ID with this storm. Cooler, with showers on Tue Oct 10. Models have been mixed as to another system for Wed, so for now, we’ll tentatively peg the 11th as a dry day; so too, for Thu Oct 12. The heavier rain, and possibly WINDS, are trending for Fri the 13th on through the weekend of Oct 14,15. There is lots of variability in the model solutions that far out, but we consistently see a “notice me” storm or two moving across the PNW in the 13th - 16th period. We’ll see.
Looks dry & mild for much of the week following Mon the 16th. In the meantime, enjoy the delightful October weather arriving this week.
