Your Forecast


By Dave Salesky

6.14" of rain in October that's over 3" above normal. Now it looks like drier weather is returning for at least the first week of November. Go figure, this is turning into an interesting fall.

A weak ridge will begin to build across the region tonight, keeping us dry. I do expect wide spread areas of fog on Friday morning. Some areas could see visibilites below 1/4 of a mile.

After the fog lifts we should have partly to mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures will remain in the low 60s, about 5 degrees above average.

Through at least the middle of next week we'll have no better than a 40% chance of rain. Freezing levels will remain well above pass levels.

Tonight's low 51

Saturday, March 28th  11:15 p.m.

Warming up...then cooling off again...

Clouds roll in overnight that will keep temperatures fairly mild, with overnight lows in the mid 40's, but not expecting any rain other than a light scattered shower along the coast. The clouds stick around for Sunday morning, but will start to burn off midday, with sun into the afternoon and high temperatures a bit warmer than Saturday, in the mid to upper 60's. So rain isn't really a factor in your weekend and the start of the week plans as weak high pressure builds Sunday into Monday.

But that changes late Monday.

As the next cold front approaches rain will be arriving by the late afternoon at the Coast and later Monday night in the Valley.

Most of the coming week looks pretty wet and cool, we'll knock the daytime highs down a good ten degrees or so starting Tuesday, with the snow level falling in the Cascades to below the mountain passes the middle of the week.

Tonight - 45

Tomorrow - 67

Monday - 70

Weather Blog 2 routine events combine for spectacular scene over Canadian skies (Photo Gallery)
Those who were up early enough Sunday morning in Surrey, B.C. and happened to look up were treated to a spectacular scene in the heavens that looks like something straight out of the imagination of a futuristic Hollywood alien blockbuster film.

In actuality, it was the combination of two rather routine events that just happened to have impeccable timing:

A sunrise (one for the ages on its own) …and a plane descending through a solid, stable cloud layer.
