We've had a couple of popular hashtags going around the Sound to sum up our sogfest this spring: #SunlessInSeattle. #RainRainHereToSTAY. #Raindiculous!
That last one will be suitable again this week, as the rain train continues to steam toward the west coast, focused mainly on Oregon and Washington. We'll hang on to a threat for rain every day, with some isolated thundershowers possible at times, too. There will be sunbreaks between showers (in fact, Tuesday should start out pretty quiet before the rain gets going again late in the day), but for the most part, there aren't any long-lived windows of sunny opportunity in the next couple of days. Average highs should be near 60 degrees in Seattle by now, but we'll continue to fall short thanks to the stubborn clouds and associated damp deluge, with highs mainly in the 50s day after day. This keeps the snow level to about 3,500', which is great news for a still-open Alpental as they continue to pile on the snow over the double-diamond International runs at the top of Chair 2.
There is some hope for a longer dry break late in the week, with a two-day partly cloudy spell Friday and Saturday. If it holds, it will be nice to wrap up the work week without having to worry about a downpour. Hashtag: #CallingInSunny!
Have a great week,
