Rain, thunderstorms possible today, maybe some sun on Thanksgiving
Rain showers and a few thunderstorms are expected here today and tomorrow, but the system that made such a mess yesterday has headed to the Oregon Coast, according to the National Weather Service in Seattle.
The thunderstorms, along with some wind, are on the Washington Coast this morning and the Weather Service is watching to see if they will reach us, says Jay Albrecht, a meteorologist with the Weather Service
Meteorologists are also watching a low-pressure weather pattern developing in the Pacific to see if it heads north. If so, it will likely create windy conditions here tomorrow. But, Albrecht added, “It could be more of an Oregon problem than here.”
Weather on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, is looking downright nice, Albrecht said.
“The good news about Thanksgiving is it looks like we’re going into a dry spell. We may even see some sunshine,” he said.
That being said, a cold front will hit the region on Friday. Skiers and snowboarders will relish the weekend weather because a hefty dump of snow is expected in the mountains.
That, of course, is good news for skiers because Stevens Pass is opening today and Crystal Mountain and Mount Baker are opening Wednesday.
