Clouds come and go this weekend, with Sunday looking nicer

Feb 15, 2013

Morning clouds should give way to afternoon sunshine Friday in many Puget Sound neighborhoods. But some unpleasant weather is headed our way for Saturday, especially in the Seattle-to-Everett area.

That's the immediate forecast from KPLU weather expert Cliff Mass, a professor of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Washington.

Most of that weather will dissipate by Sunday, and he's predicting a colder but fairly clear day. Colder air will likely stick with us into next week, he sasys, ending a streak of unusually warm February weather.

And, if you listen to this week's interview, you'll also hear about the strange cloud phenomenon over Whidbey Island this week.
