The forecasts were based on an expected El Nino event to develop this winter, along with warmer-than-normal water temperatures in the northern Pacific Ocean.

Good Morning -- and welcome to the middle of the workweek.
We're starting things off with some patchy fog, with the lowest visibility coming out of Kitsap, Thurston and Lewis Counties. Our fog will continue to burn off through much of the morning as a mix of sun & clouds is expected. Look for highs in the mid to upper 60s this afternoon.
It'll remain dry through Friday -- but change a bit come the weekend. On Saturday, computer models show a weak system heading into British Columbia. Some of that could drift down into Western Washington, but it doesn't appear to be enough for anyone to change their plans. Highs will remain in the low 70s.
The chance of heavier showers returns come the beginning of next week.
Until then, enjoy!
