|Partly Sunny||Partly Sunny||Few Showers,|
|Some Sun||Dry, Cool||Partly Sunny|
Forecast: Some sunshine and dry weather midweek as high pressure builds in for a visit and keeps us dry. The high weakens by Thursday and we are brushed by a weak low for some cooler weather and a few showers. That will put a chill in the morning air and make us vulnerable to afternoon thunderstorms. High pressure and northerly flow develop for the weekend for a generally dry and cool pattern.
Washington Passes: Snow levels generally lower towards the end of the week. Travelers beware more fresh snow in the mountains Thursday. Skiers: Best snowpack in more than two decades--great spring skiing. The resorts will start closing in the next few weeks. Updated pass information: 368-4499.
Weather Question of the Week: What is "ball lightning?"
Answer: Reports of this type of lightning are rare, but witnesses tell of a luminous ball about 12 inches in diameter, dancing whimsically through the air--sometimes inside aircraft or buildings! People have occasionally reported hissing sounds emanating from the shifting, but sometimes stationary, glowing sphere. There are no known photographs. The exact nature of this electrical enigma remains a mystery.
