Another day with mixed weather. Plan on sunbreaks at times with showers popping up now and then. Some of those showers could even include some thunder and lighting. You can thank a large area of low pressure moving across western Washington for the brisk day we are having. There will even be snow falling at times above 3000 feet. Highs today will hit the mid to upper 50s.
Sunday will bring another mix of showers and sunbreaks. Highs will be a few degrees warmer.
Monday is looking stellar for getting outside. Plan on a one day visit from high pressure to give us partly sunny skies and highs in the low 70s.
We are back to mostly cloudy skies and showers on Tuesday.
