Sunshine to Pacific Northwest: "I'm back, baby!"
After a very stormy, soggy week, the weather is taking a radical shift back to the tranquil and it appears it will remain that way for several days.
A huge ridge of high pressure is beginning to build across the West Coast, giving us a chance to wring out a bit and Trick-or-Treaters some positive signs that for once, Halloween could turn out rather pleasant!
We'll see partly cloudy skies overnight with lows in the upper 30s to mid 40s.
Expect a mostly sunny day after some patchy fog on Tuesday with highs climbing into the low-mid 60s.
Our only bump in the sunshine road comes Wednesday when a weak front slides through the region. Each successive forecast model run becomes less impressed with the front's strength and now we're down to just a mostly cloudy day with a few scattered light showers. Highs will drop just a little to the upper 50s.
But once that front is gone, sunshine is here to stay for quite some time. Expect mostly sunny days Thursday through the weekend with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. About the only blemish may be some patchy fog in the mornings.
Extended forecasts keep this ridge along the West Coast into next week as well for continued sunshine -- including Halloween.
