Happy Weekend!

Sunny and record cold this morning with temperatures in the teens and then snow showers moved in this afternoon and evening.

Models are showing a strong rain shadow effect developing tonight-Saturday morning.  This would result in very light to now snow accumulation for most lowland areas along and south of I-90. 

Winter Weather Advisory - Cascades… Today 4 PM -Noon Saturday

- 12 to 20"

- Expect Delays on Passes

Winter Weather Advisory - Blues… Today 4 PM -4 PM Saturday

- 6 to 10"

Winter Weather Advisory - East Slopes… Today 4 PM -4 PM Saturday

- 3 to 9"

Foothills

- 1 to 3"

Lowlands (including Tri-Cities and Yakima)

- Less than 1/2"

Southerly surface winds will increase tomorrow with gusts 25-35 MPH.  These winds will help warm us to the mid 40s.  So, any snow that does fall overnight-Saturday morning should melt quickly in the lowlands.

This system will exit the region Saturday evening, but another one arrives Sunday with more heavy mountain snow (Cascades: 12-24"; Blues: 5-10").  Lowlands should see mainly rain showers.  However, we could see a little snow mix late night and early morning.  Highs mid-upper 40s.

A little break next Monday with sunshine, highs in the mid 40s and lows - mid 20s.  We return to an unsettled pattern Tuesday-Thursday with scattered showers and breezy winds at times, highs mid-upper 40s.

Take Care & have a Great Weekend!
