Latest weather analysis
A warm front moved through yesterday afternoon and you can feel it. Temperatures last night remained high and we have moderate southwesterly winds aloft. But change is approaching. A weak cold front is now extending from the northwest corner of the Olympic Peninsula to Vancouver and has some light to moderate rain. The front will slowly move southeastward durng the day, but we should get considerable protection from rainshadow off the Olympics. So increasing clouds and increasing chance of showers late in the afternoon and evening. Nothing major. The front will move through over the night, bring cooler air. The weekend looks great. Some residual clouds Saturday morning...particularly over the mountains...but they should progressively thin during the morning. No rain Saturday and temps getting into the upper 50s. Sunday will be even better...temps getting to 60 and perhaps a few degrees higher. Another front and rain for Monday. Looks like a big ridge and dry spell from Tuesday into Wed.
Take a look at the latest radar image...you can see the rain north of us:
