There will be dying cold front passing to the north, through British Columbia, on Saturday, bringing in a few more clouds to the region. Despite that, sunshine will sit be pretty prevalent.
A stronger front will move in early Sunday morning. This will bring breezy conditions along the coast, as well as rain and mountain snow. Snow levels will likely start around 4,000 feet, and lower below the Cascade passes on Sunday. That means pass travel will be impacted.
There is still some uncertainty as to the amount snow, but 6 to 9 inches seems reasonable at this point. Rainfall along the coast will be close to 0.25 to 0.33 inch, while the interior valleys will be closer to 0.1 to 0.25.
Showers will be short lived with high pressure building back into the region next week. This will bring areas of morning fog and afternoon sunshine. Temperatures next week will be in the upper 50s and low 60s.
