National Weather Service forecasters advise keeping an eye to the sky tomorrow. While the forecast is for mostly clear skies and warm temperatures, there is a chance for thunderstorms.
The Ferndale area is on the edge of the western Washington region where lightning, small hail, gusty winds and brief downpours are possible tomorrow. Thunderstorm development is expected over the Cascades but how far into the lowlands this threat will extend is uncertain. No severe storms are expected.
Otherwise, the forecast for tomorrow expects mostly clear skies with a high around 70F. More of the same is expected for Monday and Tuesday.
But a change is expected as a weather system brings precipitation up from the south and into western Washington starting early Tuesday evening. A half-inch of precipitation is expected Tuesday night and another half-inch is expected Wednesday.
The Nooksack River level forecast for Ferndale says to expect an increase from the 9-foot mark Wednesday morning to over 14-feet by Thursday evening. Flooding is not expected below the 15-foot mark but drivers and property owners near the river are advised to keep an eye on the forecast since it is subject to change.
