Western Washington forecast

Light rain ends by mid-morning Sunday with areas of drizzle in the afternoon. Dry weather for the first half of the week; chilly temperatures for the last half.

PUGET SOUND FORECAST:

Cloudy, areas of light rain after midnight. Light rain will taper to spotty drizzle by late morning Sunday. Low temperatures low 40s. Mostly cloudy Sunday afternoon with partial clearing. Highs upper 40s to low 50s. Light wind.

DISCUSSION:

A weak front brings some light rain overnight into Sunday morning. Rainfall will be generally less than a tenth to a quarter of an inch in the lowlands. Skies will be mostly cloudy with a few sunbreaks Sunday afternoon, except in the convergence zone where clouds or drizzle may linger into the afternoon.

High pressure builds late Sunday and remains offshore for dry weather Monday and a cool northerly flow. Skies will clear at times for late winter sun after morning fog and low clouds start the day Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

An area of low pressure slides over the top of the ridge of high pressure Wednesday. Thursday, it slides into Oregon and drags cold air from Canada down into Washington state on its southward path. The south coast of Washington should get some light rain briefly Thursday. The rush of colder air and north/northeast wind will bring some of the coldest temperatures so far this year.
