Mostly Cloudy and Quiet Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature partly to mostly cloudy skies and generally quiet weather as a weak clipper system rolls in from the west. Winds will turn towards the southwest which will boost temps to around 20 up in the mountains and 30 along the coast. The milder air will also come with abundant cloud cover though, with just the coastline having a shot at some sunny breaks early in the afternoon. The clipper will have just enough moisture to bring some snow to the surface, mostly after dark and mostly south of Portland. Accumulations will mostly fall within the dusting to one inch range but I wouldn’t be shocked to hear of a 2″ report or two given that there will be plenty of “fluff factor” given the cold airmass and favorable snow growth.
