Spring through Thursday then back to winter…

Having fun with some weather graphics!

2-27-22. 2:45pm update…

The low this morning at Stevens Field was 4 degrees and the high so far today has been 41. There was no precipitation recorded in our area.

Meteorological spring begins on Tuesday and based on our upcoming temperatures, the weather gods have gotten the memo…at least for a few days. High pressure will rule our weather through Thursday, with daytime highs surpassing 50 degrees by Tuesday. By Friday, a large trough will dig into the Pacific NW and set up several days of potential rain and snow for our area as a series of waves move east. At this time, the models are still trying to sort this out, but I’m feeling confident that another round of moisture will arrive from Friday-next week. We could see a rain snow mix on Thursday night and Friday with snow levels forecast to rise to above 8000 feet. By Friday afternoon colder air will arrive and the snow levels should drop back to below 7000 feet. The good news is that this looks like a long period of unsettled weather that could extend through next week!
