Good Morning,

Spotty light freezing rain/drizzle this morning along the East Slopes and the Yakima/Kittitas Valleys.  Otherwise mostly cloudy and patchy morning fog.  We might even see a peek of sun this afternoon.  Morning temperatures in the upper 20s-low 30s, near 40 by noon and afternoon highs in the low 40s.

A weak front moving over the Cascades will give us a slight chance for a few raindrops.  With the cold air trapped along the East Slope and the Yakima/Kittitas Valleys we could see some spotty freezing drizzle/rain early this morning, but the chances are very slight (20%).  This front should provide us with enough low level mixing to help break up the low clouds and fog for a day or so.  Allowing our temperatures to climb into the low-mid 40s today and near 50 Thursday.  A stronger front swings through the region Friday with breezy winds and a chance for a little light rain, highs near 50.

High pressure and the inversion returns this weekend giving us another round of low clouds/fog.  Highs will likely fall into the 30s by next Monday.
