West Coast Outdoor Weather- 10-8-2015.  The weekend will bring some moderate precipitation to the Washington Cascades and Olympics. How much? Cumulative totals for Saturday and Sunday have up to 5.00 inches in water equivalent for parts of the Olympics and areas near Mt. Baker. After the dry summer, this is certainly needed.
Looking for dryer conditions? Well the extended forecast from Wednesday October 14 to Wednesday October 21 shows above normal temperatures and below normal precipitation for much of the Washington Cascades.
The weekend weather over the Sierra will bring dry conditions. However the extended gets a little tricky. A trough of low pressure (see below) is off the coast and has plenty of moisture. If this tracks towards the east and into California could bring some moderate precipitation and if it tracks towards the west than it will stay dry.  Too early to tell of the track moving forward. Stay tuned.
