Still a little too chilly for sailing, but you get the idea! This photo was taken a few years ago in Elliot Bay in Seattle, WA. Photo © 2016-Mark Langford

This morning’s lows were still way below normal with the upper Piedra reporting -3 degrees and most of the town dropped to the single digits. The cold air will slowly start modifying over the next couple of days and we should finally reach normal temperatures by this weekend. High pressure will be in control as the ridge sits over our area. Look for mostly sunny skies for at least the next 5 days and yes, it will start feeling like spring! With temperatures reaching the 60’s by next week, we could see some rising rivers…we will keep tabs on that as the days go by.
The rest of the day: Mostly sunny with highs in the low to mid 40’s. SW winds 10-15mph.
Friday: Mostly sunny with lows in the upper teens to mid 20’s and highs in the low to mid 50’s. SW winds 10-15mph with gusts to 20mph.
Saturday-Sunday: Mostly sunny with lows in the mid to upper 20’s and highs in the mid to upper 50’s. SW winds 10-15mph with gusts to 20mph.
Monday-Tuesday: Mostly sunny with lows in the upper 20’s to low 30’s and highs in the low to mid 60’s. SW winds 10-15mph with gusts to 20mph.
