After the past few months of freezing and snowy weather, perhaps the upcoming extended forecast will be welcome relief.
A series of fronts originating in the Pacific tropics are expected to roll across western Washington and bring warm temperatures and rain.
According to the National Weather Service Seattle office, “The first one will arrive this afternoon followed by another one Sunday night into Monday morning. Additional systems will arrive Tuesday and Wednesday. Milder temperatures are expected with highs climbing to a little above mid March normals for the first time in three weeks beginning Sunday or Monday.”
As a result, forecast lows for the next few days are not expected to drop below 40° and highs are expected at or above 50° while the probability of precipitation will be at or above 80%.
Rain, along with the warmer temperatures, is also expected in the mountains during this time. But the current river level forecast in Ferndale does not indicate any flooding potential as a result.
