Weekend Update

Today is the transitional day...but it really won't be half bad. A weak front is moving through now. It only brought a few light showers to scattered locations. You'll notice that temps are warmer this morning...the reason..the clouds, which prevent the loss of infrared radiation to space. The satellite picture to your right is this morning's infrared picture....white areas are clouds and whiter the color the higher the clouds. Some high clouds offshore and over and downwind of the southern WA Cascades.
Today we will see the clouds progressively thinning and some sun this afternoon...temps reaching the upper 50s. Tomorrow starts the big warm up...lots of sun and temp rising into the mid 60s. And more warm, dry weather in store for Monday and Wednesday.
