317 PM PST MON NOV 5 2012...

A BIG CHANGE IN THE OVERALL WEATHER PATTERN IS ANTICIPATED LATER THIS WEEK. MUCH COOLER AIR FROM THE GULF OF ALASKA IS EXPECTED TO FOLLOW A COLD FRONT MOVING INLAND LATE TUESDAY.

SNOW LEVELS IN THE MOUNTAINS ARE FORECAST TO PLUMMET FROM AROUND 9000 FEET TUESDAY TO NEAR 3000 FEET WEDNESDAY. RAIN DEVELOPING TUESDAY IS EXPECTED TO TAPER OFF TO A MORE SHOWERY REGIME WEDNESDAY AND CONTINUE THROUGH FRIDAY. SO SNOW AMOUNTS IN THE MOUNTAINS WILL BE RATHER LIGHT...A FEW INCHES OR SO IN ALL...

YET FOR THOSE IN OR PLANNING TO TRAVEL THROUGH THE MOUNTAINS LATER THIS WEEK...THE FALLING SNOW LEVELS AND MUCH COOLER AIR MASS WILL BE AN ABRUPT CHANGE. BE PREPARED FOR MORE WINTER-LIKE CONDITIONS STARTING TUESDAY NIGHT AND THROUGH THE REST OF THE WEEK...

IN THE LOWLANDS...TEMPERATURES HAVE BEEN QUITE MILD FOR EARLY NOVEMBER. DAYTIME AND NIGHTTIME READINGS WILL ALSO DROP BELOW SEASONAL AVERAGES WEDNESDAY INTO THE WEEKEND...

LOOKING AHEAD TO THE COMING VETERANS DAY HOLIDAY WEEKEND...
SATURDAY LOOKS TO BE THE DRY DAY OF THE WEEKEND. THEN ANOTHER PACIFIC WEATHER SYSTEM WILL SPREAD RAIN ONSHORE SUNDAY WITH SNOW IN THE MOUNTAINS AT OR JUST BELOW PASS LEVELS. AGAIN...BE PREPARED FOR WINTER-LIKE CONDITIONS IN THE MOUNTAINS SUNDAY INTO MONDAY.

MONITOR NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORECASTS AND STATEMENTS THROUGH THIS COMING WEEKEND FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION ON THE COOLER WEATHER.
