Current Weather

Weather Concerns

An unsettled weather pattern couple with lingering moisture will result in occasional clouds and a slight chance for showers Thursday. Precipitation amounts, (if any), will be light. Increasing clouds Thursday night into Frday as an area of low pressure approaches the British Columbia coast and moves inland. This feature will further increase moisture across the region and maintain a chance for light chance for light precipitation. Most shower activity looks to remain west of the Cascade crest, though there is a possibility of picking up a tenth of an inch of rain over the fires. Breezy south/southwest winds will accompany a surface front passage as well on Friday.
