Happy Friday, everyone! Off to the Pacific Northwest to see what kind of weather there is to be anticipated.
At 953AM, PT, Yakima was reporting a temperature of 46 degrees with mostly sunny skies. Satellite showed that disturbed weather over the north Pacific was pumping moisture into the Puget Sound area, but it was struggling to transcend the Cascades, leaving the Yakima Valley in good shape.
The source of the inclement weather along the coast was a developing, digging jet streak that lied off the British Columbian coast. A surface low centered over coastal British Columbia is expected to advance southeastward with the progression of the support aloft. Most of Washington will be within the realm of influence of this system, however Yakima looks to be well protected within its rain shadow between the Cascades and the Rattlesnake Hills, and only after the system reaches the Upper Midwest, an inverted trough will allow for a little easterly flow and perhaps some light rain on Sunday evening.

There is certainly a chance tomorrow could be blustery with the surface low snaking through western Canada just north of Washington state. No idea why Weatherbug is forecasting such chilly conditions.
