Current National Weather Service forecasts say to expect the mild temperatures and sometimes wet weather to continue through Friday. But then conditions are expected to swing toward more summer-like weather in the Ferndale area.

Recent computer weather forecast model output from the Global Ensemble Forecast System (GEFS) from the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction (NCWCP) show high temperatures reaching into the 80s, possibly into 90s, can be expected beginning Saturday, June 16th, and continuing through at least Thursday, June 21st, the end of the extended forecast window.

The graph above shows the many temperature forecasts generated by computer weather forecast models for temperatures in the northern inland area of Whatcom County in the near future. While most of the plots reach into the 80s, some can be seen reaching into the 90s providing reason to be prepared for the possibility of unusually high temperatures.

This weather change is expected to impact a widespread area, including parts of British Columbia and all of Washington State.
