It does appear that a much colder airmass (especially in the upper levels) will move over the Northwest later Thursday-Sunday. With surface temps just a few degrees cooler than today’s, the atmosphere should destabilize nicely each afternoon. I notice the Lifted Index for Thursday and Friday is forecast to be right around zero, which is good for spring hail and thundershowers. Not a severe weather situation for sure, but we usually get active weather this time of year (March-June) with cold troughs.
I don’t really have any other great thoughts on my mind at this hour. We are inbetween the February and May ratings period here in TV land, so that always means it’s a bit more mellow in the newsroom. The start of Season #4 BSG is still 3 weeks away, so not too much to get wound up about there yet either…Mark Nelsen
