Updated Saturday 4:30 p.m.
After a cool, damp wrap up to the work week on Friday, skies starting clearing out and brightening up just in time for the weekend. Saturday began with low clouds and fog, but ended up partly sunny with highs in the 60s--a nice one for all of the soccer matches and football games going on around the Sound. A few showers hovered around the Canadian border, but those will continue to wrap up overnight.
After a partly cloudy start and low temps in the 50s, things will warm even more as we head into our last batch of September sunshine. Building high pressure will clear us out over the next 48 hours, and highs will make a run for the 70s for the next couple of days. Monday will be the peak of the warmth, with middle to upper 70s in downtown Seattle, and a few foothill communities kissing 80 for (very likely) the last time this year.
After that, a series of wetter weather systems start to blow in, and we'll see a chance of showers back in the picture come Tuesday morning. Wednesday looks partly cloudy at this point, but rain-at-times is a good bet next Thursday through Saturday as we turn the page into a new month. Bottom line: next weekend's soccer matches and football games will probably be a bit more slippery...!
Have a great night,
