A low overcast. A steady rain.
Seattle weather is back, ba-bee!
I bet if you really pressed a few Seattleites and asked them while promising to protect their identity, they'd secretly admit they missed it. Well, it's here to stay for a little while.
The front going through this evening will pass overnight and showers will decrease in its wake. Lows will be in the mid 30s.
There will be a few lingering showers early Friday morning, but overall a dry Friday is in store with some morning fog giving way to some partial afternoon clearing. Highs should reach the mid 40s -- likely making the first time we get close to normal high temperatures in over a week.
The dry break should hold through most of Saturday -- which again will likely have some fog around to start, but it'll likely remain cloudy even when the fog burns off as another weak system approaches. We could see a few light showers by late Saturday afternoon or early evening but forecast model runs are trending later and weaker with the rain so it's possible we'll make it through much of the day dry. Highs will be in the mid-upper 40s.
A few light, isolated showers will be around on Sunday amid mostly cloudy skies with highs in the mid-upper 40s. Looks like we'll skate by Monday dry and perhaps even Tuesday before a weak system brings a chance of light rain for the middle of the week.
Long range models keep things fairly benign through the next two weeks into even Christmas. There are hints of a slight cooling trend toward the end of next week, but nothing to get excited over -- maybe just enough to drop highs closer to the low 40s. But we will still see a little rain at times. If you do want to secretly get excited over that, we won't tell :)
