Wednesday – 28 September 2022 – 3:30pm update.
The high on Tuesday at Stevens Field was 71 and the low this morning was 44. Our humidity bottomed out at 24% and the airport recorded a 20mph wind gust. Rainfall totals ranged from zero to 0.16 inches.
For the next couple of days, we will continue to see chances for scattered storms each afternoon as moisture on the surface and in the mid-levels supports for formation of showers and storms thanks to afternoon heating and lift from our mountains. By this weekend, a closed low and trough will move into the Pacific NW, increasing our rain odds and ushering in some cooler temps behind a cold front. Models are still trying to get a handle on this system with the NBM model keeping most of the moisture to our north and the EURO forecasting over an inch of rain for the valley and up to 5 inches of snow for our nearby mountains. My next update will be Friday and hopefully by then, we will have a better idea of what will be happening next week. Temps will continue to be perfect for fall foliage viewing with lows in the 30’s and highs in the upper 60’s to low 70’s through Friday.
