Rain and snow Showers along with high winds will make life not so wonderful the next few days in southeastern Washington and Northeastern Oregon.
According to the National Weather Service in Pendleton, OR, a warm front is set to arrive in the northern half of Washington. The front will hit East of the Cascades Wednesday night into Thursday.
What can we expect?
A cold front will follow on Friday. Unpack the sweaters, boots, and maybe the winter coats and jackets. It's still early for gloves or mittens. And, no need for snow boots, unless you're in the mountains.
Speaking of mountains, the snow level will be between 6,000 and 7,000 feet in southeastern Washington and central and northeastern Oregon.
Forecasters expect numerous rain showers to be heavy at times. High winds are also expected. If you plan to drive in higher elevations, be prepared.
Now is the perfect time to winterize your vehicle. Don't be unprepared for the elements. It's a good idea to change your wiper blades, fill fluids, fix tire pressure, and pack a winter safety kit.
Winter Safety Kit should include:
A flashlight, phone charger, jumper cables, kitty litter, portable shovel, first aid kit, matches, and a blanket. You may also want to have gloves, hat, and snow boots.
