A relatively mundane week ahead, though some models keep playing with a brief warmup mid-week. Which many folks, admittedly myself included, have been longing for.
We should remain dry, though mostly overcast, on Sunday and most of the day Monday, before some light rain looks to move back into Western Washington Monday evening into early Tuesday. However, some of the ensembles have turned even drier, with perhaps only a sprinkle with the bulk of the moisture moving to the southwest of us.
We begin to really widen the daily temperature ranges with the sun now up over 12 hours as we close in on the Spring Equinox in three weeks. While Lows look chilly (in the low 30°s) Tuesday and Wednesday morning, a warm front makes its way through, warming Highs into the upper 50°’s and even possibly hitting 60° by Thursday.
The warmth is expected to be brief however.
A more organized system is expected next weekend, likely bringing a return of widespread rain and more seasonable temperatures, with highs probably at best in the low 50s.
Another key distinction in the week ahead will be the lack of wind (relative calm), which, coupled with cool, damp nights, will probably heighten the prospects for patchy, if not widespread, fog, particularly in Snoqualmie Valley.
All in all, no major change from the prevailing trend of a cool and damp ending to Winter.
Have a great week!
