Nothing happening until Thursday

It looks like a quiet week ahead on the weather front.  There is no rain forecast in the UWash model for the next 3 days as a ridge of high pressure deflects oncoming fronts to our North.  On Thursday there a system is slated to break through.

Thursday 1PM Rain forecast

Thursday and Friday should add up to around 30mm of rain and then there is no rain forecast after that.

At least some of that should fall as snow on the Mountains.  Then it will cool off on the weekend with temperatures near zero.
