WEATHER: Fantastic weekend, long dry streak ahead
SEATTLE — The weather will be great, so there’s not too much to say. Sunglasses and sunscreen are two things to make it through the next several days successfully.
We do say goodbye to the soggy month of May. In Seattle, we’ve seen 3.15″ of rain– that’s well above the normal of 1.94″ for the month. It puts this month in the record books as the 8th wettest May ever for at SeaTac Int’l Airport. This comes on the heels of an April that was the 9th wettest ever. And a March that was the wettest month of March ever with more than 9 inches of rain. February also had 200% of normal rainfall. We could use a break for certain– and that break looks to start today.
FRIDAY looks amazing. Brief clouds to mostly sunny skies. A slight chance of Cascade thunderstorms. High temperatures around 80 in Portland. 70-75 for Seattle/Puget Sound. Lots of clear skies tonight with overnight lows a bit chilly, about 45-50.
SATURDAY looks amazing. Mostly sunny skies and temps about 75-80 for the I-5 corridor. Overnight lows around 50.
SUNDAY: yup still amazing. We say hello to June and more sunshine. Temps again about 70-80 for much of the region. Overnight lows about 50-55.
NEXT WEEK our dry streak continues. Chilly mornings and gorgeous afternoons. Highs for Seattle look to be about 70-75. We could be in this dry spell quite some time. The computer forecast models look to keep us in this weather pattern for the next 8-12 days.
