We ended January with warm temperatures making it the warmest January on record and we are starting February warm too! This is all due to El Nino. El Nino is where the waters in the south Pacific Ocean get very warm and that causes a lot of changes in weather as we can see with our temperatures! Friday we can expect a high near 52 with some showers in the morning. Otherwise we will be seeing mostly cloudy skies with a low of 39. On Saturday we have a very slight chance of showers but will likely see mostly cloudy skies with a high near 51 and a low near 39. I have some great news for people who like sun, and that is most of us here in Western Washington because we don’t get a lot of it this time of year! Sunday we are looking at partly sunny skies with a high near 49 and a low around 38 and the sun looks to be sticking around with us for the beginning part of next week! An update will come Sunday night for Monday’s email edition.
