A welcome respite from the near hurricane force wind gusts and heavy rainfall is likely this weekend for Washington, as dry, continental air moves into the region. The next few days should be notably cooler, but also drier and calmer. With a ridge of high pressure over the Northwest, inversions will begin to develop, leading to chilly and potentially foggy conditions in the lowlands, and warming in the mountains. However, another storm is expected early next week, along with briefly warming temperatures in the eastern lowlands. Western rainfall and mountain snowfall are anticipated, along with increasing winds. Later next week, much cooler and drier weather is possible for Thanksgiving, but the details are uncertain at this point.
