Things are working out well this afternoon with mainly rain showers falling below 1,500’ west of the Cascades. At times some snowflakes have been mixed in, but all temps are between 36 & 43 degrees across the metro area and even the top of our transmission tower is above freezing now.
Rain picks up, turns steady, could briefly mix with snow anywhere, but probably mainly or all rain. Breezy too. Temps near 40.
7:00 PM – 11:00 PM:
The rain backs off to light showers, mixing with snow up above 1,000’ later. No sticking in the metro area, but turning snowy over Coast Range and Cascades. Temps 35-40.
The Rest of the Night & Morning Commute:
Rain and snow showers, snow could briefly stick anywhere by the time we get to the morning commute; very similar to what we saw Saturday. Everyone will at least see snow in the air for GDO. Higher elevations get 1-3”, mainly near and above 1,000’.
