So much for that lamb...
March is going out with some of the more active weather we've seen this month (2.20" of rain on March 15 notwithstanding) with a traditional cool, unstable air pattern bringing a dizzying mix of blazing sunshine followed by drenching rains.
Then, of course, anyone from about Seattle to Shoreline went through quite the thunderstorm with a good dose of hail as well.
Showers and thunderstorms will continue this evening, then taper overnight with lows around 40. There is also, believe it or not, some snow in the mountains! (What?) A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Stevens Pass for as much as 3-9" of snow overnight. Snoqualmie Pass is expected to get about 1-3".
The air mass remains cool and unstable Wednesday, but not *quite* as unstable as today. Still, expect another mix of showers and sunbreaks, just fewer showers than today and perhaps not quite as intense. Highs will be in the low 50s.
We'll dry out for Thursday amid partly sunny skies (maybe an isolated shower or two) with highs in the mid 50s but another round of steady rains return Friday.
The pattern then repeats for the weekend with a mix of showers and sunbreaks -- perhaps some isolated thunderstorms Saturday but air mass doesn't look as unstable as it was today. Highs will drop to the low-mid 50s.
Showery pattern holds into early next week.
