The forecast today is for a high of 45 F and mid-20’s F tomorrow. The good news is Nooksack River flooding is expected to be minor (low-lying pasture lands adjacent to the river).
That twenty-degree drop should get your attention. It means that now is the time, if you haven’t already, to take action to minimize the risk of freezing pipes.
- drain any exterior hoses (e.g. garden and A/C).
- disconnect garden hoses from exterior faucets
- cover exterior faucets with insulated covers
- close crawlspace vents
Also surface water from the recent heavy rains will likely freeze causing dangerous conditions for driving and walking.
Precipitation should end Saturday with no additional precipitation is expected until Wednesday. This cold snap is expected to last until mid-week.
