With a high temperature of only 38 degrees yesterday, we can expect another cool and dry weather day today with highs near 40. High clouds will continue to move into the region throughout the day ahead of the next weather system, which will move in late tonight and into Wednesday. This weather system has the potential to bring heavy snow accumulations mainly to the eastern third of Washington, and north Idaho. A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for the mountains of Washington state, where some locations could see up to a foot of snow through Wednesday making mountain travel hazardous over the next 24 to 36 hours.

Thursday and for most of Friday we will be in-between storms with mostly sunny skies and warmer temperatures. High on Friday expected to reach 50 degrees. By late Friday night, a stronger weather system drops down from the north which will increase our chance for rain to 50% Friday night and 40% on Saturday.

On Sunday, the cold front and associated weather system will move out of the state leaving behind cooler and dry weather with highs only in the upper 30’s by Monday and Tuesday.
