2-9-22 1:15pm update…
The low this morning at Stevens Field was 11 and the high so far today has been 47. The high yesterday was 49 degrees, indicating that our warming trend continues. There was no precipitation recorded in our area.
NW flow and a weak wave are adding a few cirrus clouds to our sky today, but our dry weather will continue as a ridge of high pressure remains parked over the west coast. By this weekend, the ridge will weaken, drift east, as a trough digs into the Pacific NW, potentially setting us up for a chance for snow next week. The hope is for an upper-level low to form in a position that will switch our mid-level winds into a SW flow. If this all comes together, look for snow to fall from Wednesday-Friday of next week.

The rest of today: A few high clouds with a high in the upper 40’s. South winds 5-10 mph.
Tonight: Clear with lows ranging from the single digits to the teens.
Thursday-Tuesday: Mostly sunny with highs in the mid to upper 40’s and lows in the single digits to low teens.
We could see a chance for snow coming back into our forecast by next Wednesday.
My next post will be on Friday unless something completely meteorologically random occurs.
