You may have noticed that this Winter has been wet and well above the normal temperatures. You may have even given up all hope for a normal Winter and accepted that Winter is already over. Well, not so fast!
Spring doesn’t officially start until March 20th and Nature is here to remind us that. The computer models are finally signaling a shift in the weather pattern coming soon. By this weekend a cold air mass will begin intruding towards western Washington, butting up against the eastern Cascade peaks.
The result will still be milder than usual with highs in the mid 50s. Night-time lows will drop down into the 30s through the weekend, giving us a little taste of winter. The snow level will drop enough that some ski areas in our mountains might make up a little bit of snow, however likely not enough to replenish the historical lack of snow this season.
Next week will be mostly dry, maintaining mild temperatures.
