Not that rain fans have gone hungry this spring, but we should be soaking up what's coming over the next 24 hours or so because dry weather is about to finally get a foothold for a while.
Clouds were increasing this afternoon and rain was expected to arrive into the Puget Sound area this evening right around the evening commute. We'll see periods of light rain through about midnight, then change to scattered showers for the balance of the night. Lows will be in the mid 40s.
There will be some lingering showers early Saturday morning but most areas should be done with the rain by midday; the exception being the Convergence Zone areas which may see a few stubborn rain showers linger to about noon before they dry out. Highs will drop to the mid 50s.
But here we are in Day 2 of the forecast discussion and... we're done with the rain mentions! Sunday will be partly sunny and a bit warmer with highs around 60 -- probably not all that much different than yesterday's weather.
We'll go full sunshine and full spring for Monday through Thursday with highs climbing into the upper 60s/low 70s for most areas; maybe even mid 70s in the warm spots away from the water. The warmer end of that range appears to be Wednesday and Thursday with the cooler end for Monday and Tuesday, but really not going to be a whole lot of complaints between whether it's 69 or 73.
It looks like we'll cool off Friday into the weekend as we get more of marine breezes with highs closer to 60. Early bets look like dry weather holds through next Saturday with perhaps a few sprinkles next Sunday. That's about the most I've got for you, rain fans.
Have a great weekend!
