Clearing skies, mostly sunny weekend ahead

We're clearing out today.  There are a few snow showers left over the Cascades, otherwise we're dry.  This afternoon should be mostly sunny with highs in the mid 40s.  The weekend will be mostly sunny after patchy morning fog and colder -- highs low 40s, overnight lows near freezing or below.  Monday, clouds increasing and we could get a little rain late.  Tuesday through Thursday, it looks mostly cloudy with a chance of rain.  But nothing huge and impressive.  And no big dumping of mountain snow in the future.  Not good news for skiers.
