Turning Stormy in the Northwest

An active fall storm pattern developing in the Pacific Northwest this week will bring areas of heavy rain and high elevation snow. Northern California will benefit from rainfall this week that will aid firefighters given the recent large wildfires. Read More >

High clouds will clutter the skies today, but plenty of sunshine will filter through. Temperatures will climb into the 80s again this afternoon. (Normal high temperatures for October 19 range from 74 to 80 degrees across the region.) South winds will result in a gradual rise in humidity.
There will be a chance of showers and thunderstorms during the day Saturday. The better threat for more organized thunderstorms will be Saturday evening through Sunday morning ahead of a cold front. Some of these storms may become severe, producing damaging winds and large hail. Locally heavy rain that could result in flooding and cloud to ground lightning will also be possible. Expect gusty northerly winds behind the front that will sweep through the Bowie and Breckenridge areas before midnight and through the Palestine and Cameron areas by late Sunday morning.
