Wow... I've had to rub my eyes a few times to make sure it's real, and each time, the numbers stay the same.

Are we really going to pull off a sunny and warm-but-not-too-hot Memorial Day Weekend? As in all three days?

It appears so - and even more than just the three days. As anyone who's read my forecasts know, I'm a rain and cool weather fan, but even I realize the sun fans have taken the brunt of the spring so far and are probably due a stretch of weather like this, and bonus that it comes on an extended weekend.

Tonight will be partly cloudy with lows in the upper 40s.

Thursday will be somewhat similar to Wednesday in that we'll begin with morning clouds, but the sun will break out a bit sooner and that will allow temperatures to rise to around 70. There is a risk of isolated thunderstorms in the mountains for any hikers getting an early jump on the weekend, but no issues expected in the lowlands.

We warm more on Friday under mostly sunny skies as highs reach the mid 70s.

Then, a pretty remarkable Memorial Day weekend begins, especially by Seattle standards. We're in a stable pattern with light marine flow that won't be strong enough for clouds, but will provide juuuust enough "natural air conditioning" to keep high temperatures from getting too warm.

I feel like 84 degrees is about the temperature at which "warm" becomes "too warm" around mostly-air-conditionless Seattle, and highs Saturday through Monday look to stay just below the threshold at around 79-82. Humidity will be comfortable, and the lack of east wind will allow temperatures to cool into the 50s at night -- pretty much about all you can ask for in a warm pattern around here.

And as an added bonus, you don't have to go too far if you want to escape the 80s. The light marine breeze means there's cooler weather to be found! The coast will be sunny too but with highs in the upper 60s. The San Juans? Low 70s. And the North Sound inland areas should stay in the mid-upper 70s, especially near the waters.

We'll start to cool a little as we wade into next week when the marine breezes rev up just a touch, but just to drop highs into the 70s. All in all, it's a very typical, stable pattern for this time of year. Even the super long range models don't hint at much change until perhaps some better marine push days closer to the following weekend.

So sun fans, bask in it! Rain fans -- hey, it's only about 5 more months to Halloween!
