Drier conditions are expected for the rest of this weekend. In fact, the dry weather could stick around all the way into next weekend (wow)...!
Overnight, frost could form, especially for communities near the water. While I wouldn't be shocked if a pocket of fog developed, I think that's rather unlikely. Lows early Sunday morning will be absolutely freezing. Temperatures will plummet to the upper 20s and low 30s. However, most will enjoy sunshine from the start to the finish. Highs on Sunday will rebound into the upper 40s to mid 50s. Enjoy!
This week, a major spring warm-up is on the way. I'm in disbelief even writing this forecast: we're expecting pure sunshine, dry weather and highs progressively warming through next weekend. By next Friday or Saturday, highs could boost to the 70s in Seattle!
Why will our weather be so unbelievably beautiful? Our atmosphere will get "stuck" in a particular pattern. Just how a downed tree or rock in a river could force the water to redirect its flow around those objects, the jet stream in the upper-levels of the atmosphere can also get log-jammed. For much of this week, we'll be under the influence of an "Omega block." Head to my Twitter account for more. Essentially, high pressure will give us an extended period of warmth and sun.
With this kind of weather maker, we also need to watch for fire danger. The risk for fires could be slightly higher at times due to drier air. Stay with us!
