Good Morning,

Brrrr…!!!!  Increasing clouds and cold today.  Morning temperatures in the teens, low 30s by noon and afternoon highs in the mid 30s.

Upper level trough is currently sitting over the Pacific Northwest.  This has opened the door to modified arctic air spilling into the region with the northerly flow.  An upper level disturbance will move onshore today and then across north central OR this evening/night with snow showers.  The best chance for accumulating snow showers (1-3") will be along the east slopes, southern WA and OR Cascades, north central OR (S. Morrow/Umatilla counties) and the Blues.  Western portions of Yakima and Kittitas counties could see snow showers as well, but any accumulation should be light (under 1").

Mostly to partly sunny Wednesday and Thursday with highs in the mid 30-near 40 and lows teens-near 20.  Breezy with increasing clouds Friday with another weak disturbance heading in our direction.  This system could produce a few light snow showers/flurries Friday night.

Temperatures moderate this weekend with highs climbing into the 40s and lows in the 20s-low 30s.  There will also be several systems moving through the region with varying chances and precipitation types Saturday-early Monday Morning.  Most areas will likely see rain, but we could also mix in some snow at night and early morning.  Becoming partly cloudy Monday with highs in the mid 40s-near 50.
