PUGET SOUND FORECAST:
A sunny and warmer Wednesday, with highs bouncing back into the mid and upper 50s.
After a cold and foggy start to Wednesday, mild temperatures return as another weak front will stall and dissipate over Vancouver Island for partly to mostly sunny – warming into the mid-50s, with a few upper 50s.
Conditions get even warmer by Thursday, as a front just off the coast will spread increasing clouds into western Washington during the day with rain moving into Puget Sound in the late afternoon or early evening.
Friday will be a rainy day and a little breezy as the cold front moves in a dissipates over the State.
Saturday will see a partly sunny day with only a few showers left over.
Sunday and through the first part of next week, Washington will be brushed by weather systems dropping southward just off the coast giving us a mix of off and on showers and sunbreaks.
This pattern will also bring in cooler air for high temperatures dropping back to the upper 40s and low 50s to start the week. Snow levels will drop to around 1,500 feet to start the week as well.
After our very snowy and cold February in the mountains, avalanche danger is continuing in the backcountry. For more detailed information visit the NW Avalanche Center at www.nwac.us. Be sure to check before you head out into the snow.
