Western Washington forecast

Rain returns later today with cool showery weather the next few days. Drier and warmer as we head into the weekend.

PUGET SOUND:

Cloudy this morning with a few sprinkles. Increasing chance of rain - mainly  Everett northward this afternoon. Steady rain moving in around sunset tonight.  Highs will be in the low to mid 60s. Winds southerly 5-15 mph this afternoon. .

DISCUSSION:

After 5 consecutive days with highs in the 70s or warmer (hit 77 at Sea-Tac yesterday), an approaching front has spread clouds over western Washington and rain will move later today.

 A weak front is off the coast this morning and it will give us a cloudy and much cooler day. There could be a few sprinkles this morning. The front will gradually push into the interior later this afternoon and evening. Some light rain could move into the area from Everett northward this afternoon, but the steady rain will probably hold off from Puget Sound until around sunset tonight.

The cold front will move through overnight with a round of steady rain, but it will turn to off and on showers by early on Tuesday morning. Cool showery air will be over the state Tuesday and Wednesday with a mix of sunshine and mainly afternoon showers.

Thursday should see more sun and only a couple left over showers with highs pushing back close to normal in the mid-60s.

High pressure will move through on Friday and Saturday for partly sunny and warmer weather getting back to near 70 again. Sunday and Monday will see a weak weather system move through for a mix of sunshine and only a few showers.  Highs will be near normal in the mid to upper 60s.
