The wave which brought snow showers to the area today will continue the chance of light snow showers tonight before warming and drying occurs over the next few days. There may be periods of high clouds, but mostly sunny skies with warm temperatures will prevail for Thursday and Friday.
A compact storm crosses the California coast around Friday night, but current model trends have the storm staying south and possibly bringing some clouds on Saturday. We may see some light showers if the storm ends up further north than current models predict Saturday afternoon and evening.
A much larger and more intense storm approaches the Pacific Northwest around mid-weekend and may bring a long-lasting period of cold and snow for next week. An ejecting wave on Sunday will stay mostly north our area but will bring the possibility of light showers for later in the day.
The parent storm then moves ashore and looks to bring full-on winter conditions to our area as soon as Monday night.
