The Week Ahead – Enjoy some November sunshine while it lasts!

[Article by Ryan Porter of Snoqualmie Weather]

After a chilly start today and an extra hour to play with, Sunday and Monday will provide exceptional weather to break down and store away all the ghosts, goblins and candy chutes.  Highs will be running ~10° above normal, in the low-mid 60’s !

Tuesday features a transition day, as the first of a series of three frontal systems looks set to move through bringing periods of rain and wind until Saturday. On the first approach Tuesday, Higher pressure conditions east of the mountains may kick off some moderate but brief gap winds (~20-30 mph) as that air rushes through the Cascade gaps to mix with Low pressure associated with the front coming onshore.  Early Thursday looks to be a more traditional rainy and breezy period with gusts from the S/SW to ~30 mph.  Snow levels during the work week may work their way down to ~4000 ft, but well above Snoqualmie Pass and borderline (rain/snow mix) at Stevens.

Rain changes to showers later Friday and ushers in much cooler, but mostly dry conditions behind the front.  No snow threat at this point, but with highs struggling to reach low 40°’s we will have swung all the way to Highs running ~10° below normal, and a couple frosty mornings may be in store for us next weekend.

Have a great week!
