After days of stagnate air movements, many across the Northwest are looking forward to systems rolling in, moving this dust and in some cases smoke out of the area. Marilyn Lohmann with the National Weather Service said the High Pressure that’s been camped over the region for the past couple of days is starting to break down which will allow the weather pattern to become more active.
“We have this first system on Wednesday, that will pass through with mainly dry conditions, but another system is expected Thursday night through Friday night and another one early next week that should bring some much needed rain to the area.”
Lohman said most areas will see around a 1/10” of rain, with some locations enjoying up to ¼”.
Since we’re losing about two minutes of daylight each day, our temperatures continue to cool down. Lohman said currently we’re near average with our highest in the upper 40s and low 50s and overnight temperatures dropping around freezing.
“Soil temperatures continue to be in the lower to mid 50s, and we should see those remain in those lower 50s for the next couple of weeks, as we continue to transition into the cooler weather.”
