We’re tracking some areas of dense fog this morning around Puget Sound. Low visibility means low beam headlights and slowing down are both good ideas. It’s chilly in some spots, about 10-15 degrees cooler this morning than yesterday. A warm jacket comes in handy for those areas where temps in the 30s. Sunglasses will be useful after the fog lifts and evaporates later today.
A foggy and chilly start but the sun returns later today. High temps near seasonal norms in the 50s. The Snoqualmie and Snohomish Rivers both will fall below flood stage later today. Tonight looks nice and dry for the Seattle Sounders FC playoff match. Temps will be in the 50s and cool quickly with the mostly clear skies. Overnight some areas of dense fog look likely to form after midnight.
High pressure just off shore keeps us dry until Friday afternoon. That’s when a front clips Western Washington with more clouds and some showers possible in the afternoon. Most of those showers look to stay north of Seattle. The weekend is looking great. Some cold mornings and chilly afternoons, but the autumn sunshine will be a nice treat for those heading to corn mazes and pre-Halloween parties.
