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 >

Clear skies and light winds will allow temperatures to fall into the 40s and 50s overnight tonight.
Southerly winds will bring increasing Gulf moisture to the region during the next few days. Low chances of shower and thunderstorms will return Friday. Highs will be in the upper 70s to mid 80s. Lows will moderate with 50s expected Wednesday night, upper 50s to mid 60s Thursday night and 60s area wide Friday night
There will be a low chance of showers and thunderstorms on Saturday. The better threat for more organized thunderstorms will be late Saturday through Sunday. A few storms will have the potential to become strong to marginally severe with gusty winds and hail along and ahead of the front. Cloud to ground lightning may accompany any of the storms.
