Gusty east/northeast winds have developed across the area today. Crown Point has already seen gusts near 70 mph. The winds kept temperatures up overnight in most spots, but in sheltered areas especially in the southern valley and in Vancouver temperatures dipped into the 20s.
Highs today will be in the mid 40s with blustery winds (especially near the gorge). Tonight will be similar with more spots above freezing due to the winds. If you are sheltered from the winds, look out for some frost.
The weather stays dry through Saturday then a very cold airmass will drop out of Canada and start dropping our snow levels by Sunday afternoon. It’s too soon to tell, but many valley locales could see snow flakes and even some minor accumulations Sunday night into Monday. The weather will remain cool through Wednesday of next week with possible low snows continuing.
