Nice Saturday, Decent Sunday
The front has moved through and much of the action has headed to southern and central California (see sat picture). Believe me, they need every drop of rain and flake of snow they can get down there after a multi-year drought. Tomorrow should be sunny, perhaps with some residual morning clouds, with temps near 50. Nice for a walk or gardening. The snowpack is still in bad shape...there was a little light snow above 4000ft but not enough to really help. On Sunday, a frontal system will approach, but rain won't reach the interior until the evening. Rainshadow overnight and snow showers in the mountains on Monday, with a good chance of a Puget Sound convergence zone that day. Our air will cool on Monday and will be below normal on Tuesday as a more powerful system approaches. Tomorrow I will give you an update on the wintry mix that may be possible later on Tuesday. But a hint: if you live in Kitsap County, you might be ready for some white stuff.
PS: If you live in the Bellingham area, I will be up there on Sunday (4 PM) at Village Books talking about the local weather of that region.
