Seahawks at Jacksonville, Florida today. Kick off 1:25pm, (no more snow in Florida!) Mostly sunny in the mid 50’s.
This morning is frosty or foggy depending on your exact location. Most fog has been around the south sound and Hood Canal. A strong, stable, ridge of high pressure is allowing pollution to build up in the air. The National Weather Service issued an AIR STAGNATION ADVISORY through noon on Monday. There are burn bans in effect for Pierce and Snohomish Counties– air quality has been measured as Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups.
TODAY: High clouds have been passing through early but they have prevented quite a bit of fog formation. It will clear to sunny this afternoon with highs again in the 45-50 range. TONIGHT: Fog and frost redevelop around Western WA overnight and early morning. We’ll feel temperatures dip down below freezing after midnight in most places.
MONDAY: Areas of fog and freezing fog early. Where temperatures are below freezing within fog there may be areas of black ice on roads. While many of the main streets and highways are often treated with de-icer– the slickest spots could be neighborhood streets or even your own driveway and steps. So, definitely be careful out there.
Monday afternoon will have brief clearing, clouds will increase late day with areas of drizzle or light rain mainly on the coast. Highs near normal in the 40’s.
TUESDAY: Cloudy to mostly cloudy, Highs mid 40’s. Lows upper 20’s to low 30’s.
THE REST OF THE WEEK: Gradually, clouds filter in through mid-week, the dry, cold, stagnant, weather pattern breaks down. Rain is expected to develop Thursday, a few showers Friday, and then a breezy, rainy, Saturday to start the next weekend. High temperatures will end up closer to 50° and lows will be slightly milder near 40°.
