If you liked today, you'll like tomorrow and Tuesday just as much. Our weather pattern won't change much to start the week - with cold mornings in the 20s, followed by afternoon highs in the mid to upper 40s.
Perhaps you've noticed a bit of haze in the sky in our valley locations. A YELLOW (MODERATE) AIR QUALITY INDEX will continue through the middle of the week due to high pressure settled in our area - keeping the air fairly stagnant and allowing an inversion to form. There is NO air quality alert in effect for our area, though outdoor burning is not allowed currently.
High pressure is still in control, giving us mostly sunny days and clear nights. Overnight lows will dip to the mid 20's, with afternoon highs in the mid to upper 40's each day. We're finally in for some changes starting Wednesday as the clouds increase. This is ahead of our next system which will bring scattered rain showers and high elevation snow (above 5000') for Thanksgiving into the weekend. Breezy to windy conditions will persist into the weekend as well - and by Saturday, the snow levels will lower to around 3,500'. There may even be a few wet flakes for valley locations early Saturday, though no accumulation is expected on the valley floor.
Travel through the mountain passes of the Pacific NW may prove to be tricky for holiday travel, starting Thanksgiving Day and continuing into the weekend.
