Forecast: A weather front moves through with a good shot of rain mid-week. If you're concerned about flooding, I don't think this system will produce too much rain, but snow levels will rise and it needs watching. Right now, the weekend looks like it will be improving, but the computer model wanted to improve it greatly this week and it didn't happen. I'll go for a dry Easter egg hunt, with some trepidation.
Washington Passes: Snow levels on the rise mid-week for rainy driving in the mountains, snow on the roads later in the week. Skiers: Friday and the weekend look to be the best. Updated pass information: 368-4499.
Weather Question of the Week: What is the green flash?
Answer: A Scottish legend proclaims those who have seen the green flash will never err in matters of love. Certainly that's motivation to search for a glimpse. The green flash is a momentary green light at the top of the sun during sunset, just as it disappears. It is caused by the bending of the sun's last rays of light, only under specific atmospheric conditions. Danger: looking directly at the sun can cause permanent eye damage. Never look directly at the sun!
