There will be increasing clouds and showers today. We have a just a few sprinkles outside this morning, but the afternoon will bring showers and then plain old rain by the overnight hours. Highs today will hit the low to mid-40s.

We do have a WINTER STORM WATCH up for the Cascades tonight and Monday. Plan on winter driving conditions with snow and some freezing rain across the passes.

For the rest of us, Monday will be gray and showery. Plan on breezy conditions as well as the next front approaches the coast.

Tuesday plan on rain and wind with highs in the mid-40s in most areas.

Behind that front comes some cooler air that will take over for the rest of the week. Highs will drop back to the upper 30s with overnight lows below freezing in many spots. Because of the snow level will be around 1000 feet for several days; the second half of the workweek could bring a few snowflakes mixed in with your showers especially on those higher hilltops.
