Cool, windy, and wet conditions are ahead in your Monday forecast. Winds will likely be the biggest factor in today's forecast. Valley areas are expected to have sustained winds from 10 to 25mph out of the South, and gusts of up to 35mph. Showers have been confined to the Northwest corner of the state this morning, but will slowly spread through the region by tonight. Snow levels are between 1500" to 2500" in the Northern Mountains, while the Sierra, and Cascades will have a snow level of 3500". Temperatures dropped into the mid 30's to mid 40's overnight in the valley, and into the low 20's to low 30's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures are expected to climb into the high 50's to low 60's in the valley, and into the high 30's to high 40's in the mountains.
Stronger precipitation is expected in your Tuesday forecast. Thunderstorms will also be very likely in the valley. Winds will continue to be strong through Wednesday morning. there will be a chance of lingering showers on Wednesday, but that should taper off by the afternoon. Warmer temperatures, and clearing skies will return towards the end of your workweek forecast. I hope everyone is careful on the roads over the next few days, and has a marvelous Monday!
