First Frost of the Season Tonight?


Some of you have probably already had your first frost, as the Shelton and Olympia areas recorded a low of 30 degrees this morning. Bremerton *only* got down to 35, but that’s still a good 10+ degrees below normal. And due to the clear skies and calm winds tonight you can count on a very cold night and morning tomorrow.

In fact, it’s been so cold there are already Winter Weather Advisories in Montana and Wyoming highlighting snow potential. Even Bend, Oregon recently received some snow. Hmmm…not very El Nino-like. More on that in a second.

For now, expect more sunshine ALL WEEK with highs in the low to mid 60s which is seasonably mild. Lows will be in the low to mid 30s due to the calm winds and clear skies. I guess that’s the price we must pay for beautiful afternoon sunshine!

Any rain lovers out there? Our next shot at some decent rain doesn’t look likely until a week from now so be patient! It’s coming… 🙂

Tomorrow I’ll be doing an El Nino update which may surprise many of you. I’ll give you a hint: it’s dying. (!)

Have a great evening!
