7 Day Forecast
So far today...
Updated: Sunday, 11:25 p.m.
Tonight's weather update was written by Kelley Bayern, our UW Atmopsheric Sciences intern.
This weather on Sunday felt good, didn't it? We maxed out at 79 degrees in Seattle--a perfect final afternoon of summer. However, a major switch in this pleasant weather regime will occur as we head into the work week - perfect timing for the segway into the Fall season.
Looking ahead to this week, the clouds will make their way into our region quickly on Monday, making for mostly cloudy skies and a drop in temperature into the upper 60s and low 70s by the afternoon. The weather models show a weak front swinging off of a low pressure system over Canada, which could bring a few scattered showers later in the day. Fall officially begins at 7:29 p.m., and more autumn weather takes over as the season officially unfolds.
As we work into Tuesday, things get a little more wet. Expect cloudy skies, maximum temperatures in the upper 60s and rain likely for the evening commute home from work. On Wednesday, another large low pressure system coming off of the Pacific starts to head in towards us. Expect increasing rain and overcast skies as the front passes through our region. Temperatures should stay in the mid to upper 60s.
The rest of the week and into the weekend have a very similar pattern. This week is definitely going to be a gloomy one that is filled with overcast skies, chillier temperatures and a lot more rain than we've seen in a while. Keep your chins up, though. Fall is great in its own way and I'm personally excited for the rainy days and colder weather to come.
Until next time,
