Overall, it's going to be a quiet Saturday night. We'll have some showers coming through the lowlands as overnight lows fall into the upper 30s.
If you've got to get over the pass, make sure you're prepared with chains. And patience. There's A LOT of snow coming down -- so much that a WINTER STORM WARNING continues for the Cascades through 4am on Monday. Another 12-18" of snow will fall. So, drive safe.
In the meantime, we're watching a strong Fraser Outflow -- which is going to kick up the wind across the North end on Sunday afternoon. Winds could gust in excess of 50 mph -- making it feel a lot colder than it is. A HIGH WIND WATCH goes into effect for Whatcom and San Juan Counties from Sunday afternoon through Monday morning.
With that said, the cold air arrives and with some scattered moisture -- there's a potential for lowland snow on Monday morning. Snow levels should hover around 500', but with the stronger bands -- we can once again see some scattered snow at sea level. We'll certainly keep watching it.
We dry out -- but still remain VERY COLD from Tuesday through Thursday as morning temps. drop to the mid 20s and daytime highs struggle to reach the mid 30s.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
