... a significant weather change expected late in the week...
A change to wet weather is expected beginning Friday as a series of pacific fronts will impact the pacific northwest. the first cold front will arrive Friday followed by progressively stronger storms every 24 hours or so. there is a lot of uncertainty in the timing and amount of rain expected... but there is fair confidence that these storms will end the current dry spell.
The main impact of these storms will be rain... but the coast and higher elevations may experience strong gusty winds with some of the stronger storms early next week. Daytime temperatures will drop to the low to mid 60s.
