A soggy start to the day for many places up and down the I-5 corridor. The good news is that the wet weather will not last all day. The system of low pressure in eastern Washington that’s providing the atmospheric instability for the area is moving slowly into Idaho and Montana. June is typically part of our rainy season– though it’s often one of the driest months in our rainy season with an average of 1.19″ of June rainfall. This month so far, we’ve had 0.48″ of rain.

TODAY we’ll see morning rain that tapers into scattered showers through mid-morning. Gradual clearing in the afternoon. High temps a bit warmer than yesterday, I expect mid 60s for today for Seattle and most of the Puget Sound. Cooler for the coast, with temps near 60. Overnight lows will be in the low 50s with mostly cloudy skies.

TOMORROW we start out cloudy but dry. I expect we’ll see gradual clearing through the morning. A nice afternoon with high temps getting close to the normal of 70 degrees.

THE REST OF THE WEEK has a few passing showers possible Thursday evening into Friday morning. Friday afternoon still looks pretty cloudy. The summer solstice happens officially Saturday morning at 3:51am. Partly sunny skies expected for both Saturday and Sunday with some nice high temps around 70-75.
