This blog will be issued every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday morning and updated if the weather is changing or critical or interesting weather events are occurring.
Last night a low pressure trough and frontal system passed through the Pacific Northwest with the southern end bringing a few light showers to the north end of the state. Today there will be some lingering clouds over the areas north and east of the valley with a few light sprinkles. These clouds will clear by sunset. The rest of the north state will be mostly sunny today with near normal temperatures.
Sunday through next week we will be under a weather pattern like the one shown on the map below. High pressure will be off the coast with a low pressure trough to our east. During this "in between" weather pattern we will have mostly clear skies with slightly above normal temperatures. Gusty north winds will occur tonight through Monday and again Thursday through Saturday.
