We're starting things off on a wet note this Thanksgiving morning. Some of the showers will be heavy at times, with breezy conditions, too.
Most of the rain will fall across the Cascades -- specifically the Northern Cascades -- and that's why a
Flood Watch remains in effect for all counties along the I-5 corridor from Lewis County north to the Canadian Border (including King/Pierce and Snohomish) through Friday afternoon. Temperatures will remain on the mild side -- in the mid-upper 50s. The "warmest" Thanksgiving was 59 degrees set back in 1983. So, we'll certainly be close today.
In the meantime, it'll remain wet at times tonight and through Black Friday. So, make sure to have the raingear ready to go to the mall at 3am. Yes, most shopping centers are open :)
Saturday is where things get VERY INTERESTING. Cold air will stream south out of the Fraser River Valley and pour into Western Washington. Some forecast models suggest this cold air intrusion will meet up with some lingering moisture and that means we'll have the chance of lowland snow. How much snow is still to be determined -- but we'll continue to watch it and let you know.
Saturday night will be a throw back to a few weeks ago when we were generally clear and cold. Lows will drop into the low 20s in the outlying areas to the upper 20s in the city. Sunday will be crisp and cold -- and things are looking somewhat dry into next week.
Until then -- enjoy family, friends and football!
