National Weather Service ~ Widespread showers to bring brief heavy downpours along with possible small hail and lightning to the region today.
A cold and unstable air mass over the Pacific northwest is providing very favorable conditions for shower activity today. Showers are expected to be widespread throughout the day and will bring the potential for brief heavy downpours along with the potential for embedded small hail and lightning.
Although the odds are quite small the conditions are in place which could lead to the development of a short-lived waterspout or cold core funnel. Shower activity should diminish as surface temperatures begin to cool after sunset.
