Showers will be tapering off today giving us a good chance of a dry Tuesday.
The leading edge of an upper level high (Shaded “Arch” shape) has been sending colder air down from Canada driving snow levels down. A frontal system pushes toward Oregon bringing the chance of rain tapering off today. High pressure sliding eastward will dry us out for a short time late today and Tuesday. Low pressure and another frontal system will slide toward us Wednesday increasing the rain chances. See the pattern here of frontal systems (this one shown on Friday) that will march through the Pacific Northwest.
