A chance of getting wet today, but decreasing chances tonight. Look for plenty of sunshine Friday lasting into the weekend.

An upper level trough of low pressure (Shaded “U” shape) is sliding through the Pacific Northwest spreading showers . A new high pressure ridge (Shaded “Arch” shape) dries us out Friday through the weekend and then a new trough takes over early next week. A frontal system looks like it will get stuck as a stationary front well north of us next week and move in midweek.

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.
