7 Day Forecast
So far today...
Updated Tuesday 3:30 p.m.
The mountains have been boasting they could measure snow in several feet over the past few weeks.
Guess what? Now Seattle can measure its rain in feet too...
Today sunshine is a very welcome sight for many -- a break from the one-foot of rain that has fallen in Seattle since Feb. 8 (12.01") To put that in perspective, that is more rain than October, November, December and January combined!
But we've had enough talk about the rain, let's talk about some sunshine as you've got another day of it coming. Tonight will be mostly clear early then patchy fog late with lows in the mid 30s to near 40.
Wednesday's going to take Tuesday's sunshine and add in a little more warmth with highs climbing into to around 60! It'll be the first 60 degree day in a while that didn't come with boatloads of rain attached.
A bit more of a marine flow will engage for Thursday and that will keep it a little cloudier around the Sound, but still dry with highs drifting down to the mid 50s.
Our next chance of rain is Friday as a standard issue cold front sweeps through. Expect light to moderate rain at times with highs in the low 50s.
We quickly rebound for Saturday as we get into the warm sector of another front that stalls offshore. That'll be good for filtered sunshine (with those thin mid-to-high level clouds around) and highs again near 60.
Looks like clouds will thicken up a bit for Sunday as that front finally staggers ashore, but showers should hold off until late Sunday -- maybe even Sunday night if we're lucky.
Those showers should end Sunday night or Monday morning and we'll have another brief dry stretch for early next week with highs in the low-mid 50s under partly sunny skies.
While some showers are around later next week, no several day stretch of rain is in the offing any more -- no small feat this late winter! :)
