Today's Forecast

Updated Friday 3:50 p.m.

A fortnight later, the rains have come.

Yes, it's been so long since it's rained in Seattle, it's measured in 19th century English terms.

We've already had a few light showers sneak through this afternoon, and they'll increase in coverage and persistence as we get into tonight with lows in the mid 50s.

Saturday will feature rain at times with highs only in the mid-upper 60s.

Those showers taper off Saturday night and we might manage to squeeze in several hours of dry time Sunday as we're in between weather systems. Rain will return to the coast by late afternoon or early evening but should hold off in Seattle until around sunset. Highs will be in the upper 60s.

A rainy Sunday night will taper off to just a few isolated showers on Monday, especially in the morning. Could even eke out some partly sunny skies Monday afternoon with highs near 70. So there will be some spots to enjoy Labor Day Weekend outdoors, just...not Saturday.

A mostly cloudy but dry day Tuesday will give way to another round of light showers late in the day that will linger into Wednesday with highs around 70.

Long range models suggest dry and warmer weather as we head into the end of the week. So it's pretty much a slam dunk we won't reach a score of days with consecutive rain :)
