Updated: Sunday, 5:30 PM
Sunday started out a little bit on the soggy side, with some bands of rain moving through between sunrise and the lunch hour. After that, things started to brighten up, and most of Puget Sound finished the day with partial clearing. Highs bounced back into the upper 40s, which is about average for this time of year. The mountains picked up a few more inches of snow--all the better to coat the ski resort slopes with a fresh coating for weekend visitors.
The increasingly spotty showers will continue to fall overnight, especially at the ocean beaches. Lows will drop into the upper 30s. Nothing to see here: typical January weather.
There will be even less to see as the week goes on. The area of low pressure that spun showers into our region Sunday dives toward California instead (like most that have come before it this winter--the poor golden state has been under a deluge for weeks), leaving us with clearing skies. January sunshine will be on tap every afternoon, although we may have to navigate through some morning fog on the early commutes. Afternoon highs will hit the middle 40s, but early lows will start near or even below freezing in the colder pockets. If the fog really gets going, we may have some freezing fog and icy commutes to worry about--stay tuned.
Have a great night,
