Updated Thursday 4:30 p.m.
Today, April 17, is the latest day of measurable snow recorded in Seattle (1972).
So snow is officially out of the picture now till next fall. But as you know, rain is never out of the picture here.
It will, however, take a short break. Steady rains this evening will rapidly decrease as we get into the night and the cold front passes. However, a lingering Puget Sound Convergence Zone will keep the rain chances going between Seattle and Everett. Lows will be in the mid-upper 40s.
A much drier day Friday – just a few isolated lingering showers in the north Sound but for most everyone else a partly sunny day with highs around 60.
Clouds begin to increase again Friday night but it looks like we’ll hold off dry through about midday Saturday before our next bout with rain moves in. Expect light rain at times Saturday evening through the night with highs in the upper 50s.
Showers and sunbreaks are on tap for Sunday and Monday but looks like we’ll have plenty of dry time between the showers. Highs will be around 60. A generally shower-and-sunbreak pattern holds through much of next week with seasonal high temperatures in the upper 50s.
And, no snow :)
