The Week Ahead – The Thanksgiving Forecast

We’ve seen a good round of light to moderate gap winds (expected to die out Sunday morning) in the foothills ahead of an incoming weak cold front Sunday night into Monday that should deliver light rain in the Valley and light snow at Snoqualmie pass (accumulations ~1-4″).

The next more organized front should arrive Tuesday evening into Wednesday, bringing rain with potentially onshore breezy conditions to the foothills.  Snoqualmie Pass looked to be more on the bubble between rain and now with earlier model runs, but 2-8″ of snow looks more likely now.  Even in those slightly warmer scenarios, nothing suggested a significant warming and/or heavy rain to cause much, if any, melt off of existing accumulations.

Looking out longer-term for Thanksgiving, lingering showers look likely for the lowlands and light snow/flurries in the mountain passes.

The remainder of the coming week (Friday-Sunday) looks rather uncertain, but odds are currently in the camp of a weak ridge building with drying conditions possible, at least for a good chunk of the weekend.

Looking forward to giving thanks this week and another crack at setting up those outdoor decorations next weekend, for those of us still clinging to the pre-2020 process:)

Hoping everyone has a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

Have a great week!
