The Week Ahead – Wishful for snow? Probably not, blame the round of gap winds set to return.

Too warm and too little precipitation seems to be the story for those hoping to see some real snow anytime soon. With school out Monday in the SVSD, it may be an opportune time for a little of the white stuff.

Early Monday temperatures and precipitation chances (very slight if any) look to be a near repeat to last night.  We can’t rule out a dusting above 500ft, but the chances look low at this point.

We’re just not seeing the building cold air out of B.C. as we saw with last year’s Janmageddon storm that dropped 15-20″ of snow around the Snoqualmie Valley in mid-January 2020.

Tuesday, we look to shift out of the pattern of calm northerly flow we’ve been having for more than a week as a more significant Low develops out in the Pacific, bringing a return of gap winds with gusts likely to peak ~40-50 mph Tuesday evening. We aren’t likely to see much if any precipitation as the Low looks to remain well offshore.

However, this shift does look to make us more vulnerable to periods of showers and breezier conditions through much of the remainder of this week.

We do remain rather cool, somewhat on the fringe for a light snow threat much of the week in the foothills, but as we’re not in direct line of anything significant, precipitation amounts look light.

We’ll update through the week of course if things change.

Have a great week!
