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.
Updated Tuesday 6:40 a.m.
It's not as wet or foggy as it was yesterday -- but we're still picking up some scattered rain across the NW Interior this morning.
Few showers will linger Tuesday amid mostly cloudy skies and that will keep highs in the low-mid 60s.
Wednesday and Thursday will start with some morning fog/low clouds but sunbreaks are expected each afternoon. Expect highs to transition closer to the average this time of the year -- in the mid to upper 60s.
Few showers could pop-up on Friday as a weak disturbance moves into British Columbia -- but no major rainfall amounts are expected out of it. Another partial clearing continues into the weekend.
Enjoy the day!
