FORECAST:

The Arctic high is winning out with a low to our west off the coast will continue to give us clear cold conditions in a Northerly flow aloft, switching later this am to West-Northwesterly. Most of the precipitation will stay South of our zone adding to the misery in Vancouver and Seattle areas.  We will likely see some cloud later in the day. The low may spin some moisture at us Monday night into Tuesday but time will tell, we are on the edge. So far its looking cold and sunny for Wednesday & Thursday. Guesstimates if it does snow: Trace to 3 cm by Tuesday morning, trace to 2 cm by Wednesday morning.
