Weather with Cliff Mass
Sunshine! Then some rain, and then ... more changes
Just one day of glory is all we get, says KPLU weather expert Cliff Mass. The clouds roll in tonight, at least around most of western Washington, followed by periods of rain tomorrow.
The sun will still be shining over Portland on Saturday, and east of the Cascades, says Mass, a UW professor of Atmospheric Sciences.
The changes are all typical of June, he says, and by the middle of next week, we'll likely flip back to a few days of sunshine.
This week's interview also covers how to "read" the clouds and tell if rain is on the way.
