After two days of record-breaking mild weather, rain is back!

Light rain is falling around the area. However, it will be patchy during the day. Daytime highs will be mild- in the upper 50s. Amounts will be light. Rain will continue at times tonight and tomorrow.   Overnight lows will be near 49 degrees. Expect a rainy and windy day as front number two arrives tomorrow.

Colder air arrives on Saturday. Daytime high temperatures will drop about 10-15 degrees. The valley snow level will drop to 1000 feet. Expect a light accumulation in the higher hills around town. However, only a rain/snow mix looks likely on the valley floor through Saturday afternoon.  Overnight lows will be in the 20s in the valley; single digits east of the Cascades. Also, expect light snow to accumulate in the mountain passes on Saturday. However, Sunday is now looking like a cold, dry and windy day in most Pacific Northwest locations.
