We continue with our not so normal November weather as we head into the work week. More sunshine on tap for Monday. In fact, tomorrow will look like a copy of what we saw this weekend. Expect another frosty/chilly start with temps in the upper 20s and 30s. Allow for extra time warming up those cars tomorrow morning. Seattle will see temps fall into the mid 30s while further south lows will dip into the upper 20s again! Brr! Bundle up! The patchy morning fog/freezing fog will give way to plenty of blue skies. The normal overnight low for this time of year is 40 and we will get back to that average low by mid week. But for now dress warm as you start your day, especially if you're up and out early.
We can thank our friend high pressure for our cool and dry November weather. Normally we see about six and a half plus inches of rain for this month, but right now we have just 0.87" so far. The record is 15.67" set back in 2006. So, when are we finally going to see rain again in Seattle? Well, it's on the way arriving late Tuesday into Wednesday in the overnight hours. A series of weather systems will bring wet weather Wednesday through the weekend. Wednesday's rain starts out light with heavier showers on Thanksgiving and Apple Cup Friday! A return of lowland rain means snow in the mountains. Levels will drop Wednesday to around Steven's Pass at 4,000' and Thursday levels fall off a bit more to near 3,000', which is where Snoqualmie sits when you climb to the top of I-90.
Mountain travel is something we will keep a close eye on as folks hit the road for the holiday and the 111th Apple Cup in Pullman. Going over the passes Wed/Thurs looks a bit rough, but returning Sat/Sun looks a little better for travel. This is not a major storm, but it will deliver some snow in the mountains and in Eastern WA. Right now the forecast is calling for a chance of morning snow in Pullman on Friday then by midday we should see just rain with temps in the low 40s for kick off at Martin Stadium. More details as we get closer to the end of the week.
Enjoy the week everyone! Erin
