A very chilly start to your Monday forecast, with wet weather spreading across the Northwest corner of the state. Showers have mostly been limited to the Coastal Range and Northern Mountains, but some scattered sprinkles have made it into the valley early this morning. Valley temperatures have dipped into the mid to high 20's, and mountain areas have dropped into the low teens to mid 20's this morning. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb into the low to mid 50's in the valley, and into the low 30's to low 40's in the mountains. Winds will only be up to around 10mph out of the North. Showers will taper off throughout the day, but possible light precipitation will continue for the Northwest corner of the state.
Cloudy skies, and the potential for light showers will continue over the next several days. Clouds will leave the region with warmer overnight low temperatures moving forward in your work week forecast, and afternoon highs will also be slightly warmer than today. The best chance for widespread precipitation will return to the area on Thursday, and last through at least Friday morning. Snow levels will bottom out at around 5000 feet from Thursday's system. The valley could get up to a half an inch of rain, and mountain areas could get up to 1.5 inches of rain. The next system will arrive in the region on Sunday, and last through early next week. There will continue to be a slight chance of showers every day for the next week, but Thursday and Sunday look to be the most promising. I hope everyone stays warm on this cold morning, and has a marvelous Monday!
