Typically the last weeks of November are the bottom of NW weather...the wettest, stormiest time of the year. But not this year. I am going to fix up my bicycle for some nice rides.
Today is a break before the next system..poised off our coast, arrives around dinner time (see satellite pic). The approach of this system is clearly showed by high-resolution regional weather prediction models (see graphic of 3-hr precipitation ending 4 PM). The serious rain will occur overnight...and tomorrow morning will have a few showers in the lowland and more steady showers in the mountains.
Talking about mountains, we did get some post-frontal snow showers in the Cascades yesterday (see pictures at Stevens Pass, which got around 9 inches). There will be more tonight and tomorrow am...but not enough to even think about skiing.
Sunday should be a sunny day with no precipitation, with highest getting into the lower 50s.
Right now the long-range forecast models show no major weather events next week, just a few weak weather systems and a generally ridge (area of high pressure) over the western U.S.
