ADVISORY: Cold/Wet/Windy Front Expected To Hit Saturday
We haven’t seen one of these since July 29th, when the temps hit 104-degrees â€“ an actual Weather Advisory â€“ this time for quite the opposite: a cold/wet and “breezy” front to come in Saturday.
Consider yourselves warned, especially those of you planning on attending say, an outdoor wedding late Saturday afternoon:
… A cool and wet Labor Day weekend is expected across western Washington…
A cold front will move across western Washington on Saturday… bringing periods of rain… cooler… and breezy conditions. The front will be followed by an unseasonably cool and showery upper level trough Saturday night through Labor Day. Temperatures in The Lowlands Sunday and Labor Day will struggle to hit the lower 60s during the afternoon hours.
Snow levels in the mountains will be around 6000 feet Saturday night into Labor Day. Temperatures above 3500 feet will remain in
the 40s during the daytime hours. Cold temperatures will be accompanied by occasional showers and breezy conditions.
People planning travel into the mountains this weekend should be prepared for fall-like conditions. Dress warm and take rain gear. Hypothermia can occur with these expected conditions.
