Morning Headlines with Steve Kaye

Tim Chuey Weather:

It looks like the chance of showers is going away for a while starting Thursday and it will warm up a bit too.

Advisories: NONE AT THIS TIME.

An upper level trough of low pressure (“U” shape) has moved through the Pacific Northwest, but a series of ripples in that flow will be followed by an even stronger low that will slide along the coast. That will keep us alternating between periods of clouds and cooler temperatures, and even some light rain or drizzle, then back to some more sunshine and warming temperatures. A frontal system has pushed through the Pacific Northwest spreading showers throughout. Another frontal system approaches the coast Friday AM with clearing and warming behind it for the weekend.

Forecast: Mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers this AM, a (30%) chance of showers in the afternoon (under 0.10 in. of rain possible), just mostly cloudy tonight and Thursday AM, a mix of clouds and sun Thursday afternoon and Friday, partly cloudy Thursday night and Friday night highs 70-75 lows 47-50. A mix of clouds and sun and warmer Saturday and Sunday with partly cloudy skies Saturday night, then partly cloudy Sunday through Tuesday highs 76-82 lows near 50. (seasonal averages high 81 low 51)

Because weather forecasting is a combination of science, intuition, and timing there can be no absolute guarantees that individual forecasts will be 100% accurate. Nature is in a constant state of flux and sudden unexpected weather events can happen.
