The clear skies last night dropped our temperature down to just below freezing (-0.4°C). We now have some moisture coming in from the Pacific…
… And that is giving us a few flurries this morning. Nothing was sticking when I walked out the door at 6AM and nothing is predicted to stick according to the UWash models but cooler parts of the Valley and higher elevations may have a skiff of snow on the ground. There is also a chance for freezing rain, so please be careful driving. If we get a quick shot of heavier precipitation when the main system moves in we may see some of that fall as wet snow and accumulate before turning to rain.
The image below is the snow forecast for 4AMTue-Wed. You can see the snow stayin to the higher elevations.
Rain and Wind coming Monday/Tuesday.
There is around 30mm of rain expected to fall by Tuesday morning.
Another 30mm, though probably less, will fall on Tuesday to Wednesday morning.
The precipitation has already started falling this morning obviously howevernthe strongest rain looks on the model to be around the noonhour and tapering off after 2PM and ending by 5PM.
More rain will begin tonight and overnight, peak around 9AM Tuesday and finish around 2PM Tuesday afternoon, More rain is coming Wednesday afternoon.
There will be some gusty Southerly and SouthEast winds this morning peaking again around noon and then peaking again tomorrow around 10AM. No Wind warnings have been issued for our area though.
