Light rain this morning is transitioning to some scattered showers as we get into the afternoon around Western Washington. Later this afternoon, this could be some very widely scattered showers and the possibility that we’ll see some small pop-up thunderstorms as well around the region. Today for Seattle: high temps 75-80.

All these bands of rain are caused by a system of low pressure spinning off the Oregon Coast– and while it’s kind of meandering in the Eastern Pacific– it looks to migrate a bit south and west by tomorrow. This gives us a chance of showers along the Coast and Cascades– but could leave the Puget Sound region dry but cloudy.

This same system finally looks to be on the move by Thursday. But, it will likely track right over Western WA– giving us our wettest day of the week along with best shot for some lowland t-storms. Some of these showers look to last into the first part of Friday.

Good news when it comes to the weekend– both days appear to be dry at this point, with seasonal high temps in the mid 70s. Enjoy!
