Track storms near you with the new Q13 FOX Weather App — get it here!

The active spring pattern continues. Isolated storms roll through but with a little less intensity from the previous 24 hours. With that said you can plan on some hail or thunder at times especially outside of Seattle. The mountains get a nice new shot of snow to add to the foot or more they picked up yesterday. Alpental picked up nearly 18 inches. Sad as that comes at the end of the ski season but will help with the summer snow pack. More snow over the weekend at 3000ft. Thursday looks mostly dry and Friday looks wet again. The weekend looks like sun and rain but not as stormy as it has been.

A reminder that with lightning you can use the 5 to 1 rule. See the flash and if the boom is within 5 seconds then the strike is less than a mile from you and you need to go inside.
