Lowland rain and mountain snow on the way this holiday weekend!

Thanksgiving did not disappoint!  From our foggy start out to our sunny complete highs warmed above normal into the small 50s all-around Puget Sound.  

The ridge of large strain that gave us a lovely Thanksgiving is slowly but surely shifting east overnight.  This will open the door for the upcoming process to slide in from the north and proceed to fall the south Friday. We anticipate weighty rain by way of the evening commute.  

Snow levels will get started Friday all around 7,000′ and slide to in the vicinity of 4,000′ later in the day. 

We do dry out Friday night into most of Saturday as we are in a bit of a lull in between methods.  

Highs Friday land in the higher 40s to around 50 around Western WA.  The coast and the foothills are marginally hotter by a few degrees. 

Not only is this a holiday weekend it can be also Apple Cup! If you happen to be traveling throughout the mountains, be conscious of circumstances as you head around the move.  

A “Winter Storm Observe” goes into influence Saturday afternoon lasting through early Monday early morning higher than 1,500′.  We anticipate vacation to be complicated at occasions as snow gets to be major at instances.  Look for accumulations 8-15″.   

System for a incredibly cold 7:30pm kick off temperature in Pullman Saturday as the Huskies and Cougars fight it out for the 113th time!  It literally will be freezing through the game… so bundle up!  #GoHuskies   

Count on snowy circumstances into the Cascades when traveling back west to Seattle from Pullman Sunday.  The “Wintertime Storm View” continue to in impact.  Know the roads prior to you go.

Any leftover humidity Monday could start as a wintry mix for some just before we dry out and see a pleasant, crisp Tumble working day!  Snow stages Monday fall to 1,000′ and will keep on to tumble into future week. 

Get all set for a cold air-mass to cling with us via the previous 7 days of November into the get started of December.  With cold air in spot, reducing snow degrees, and probable methods swinging through the Northwest we are retaining a close eye on the likelihood for lowland snow.  

Tuesday – Thursday it will be chilly, in actuality we are forecasting upper 30s to in close proximity to 40, but there is a chance we could possibly fall even colder.  Add in any precipitation to this mix, and we may just commence the new month with a minor snow on the floor throughout the area.  We’re not conversing about a main snow occasion, but probably 1-4″ for some…. like regions to the north in Western WA County, the Olympic Peninsula, and Hood Canal have a better likelihood for flurries. 

Keep tuned! Have a excellent weekend all!  ~Erin Mayovsky, FOX 13 Forecaster
