Tonight's weather update was written by Kelley Bayern, our UW Atmopsheric Sciences intern.
This weather today feels good, doesn't it? It is currently 79 degrees in Seattle and will most likely hit 80 before the day's end. However, a major switch in this good weather regime will occur at the start of this week - perfect timing for the segway into the Fall season. Enjoy this evening because it will be the last gorgeous evening before we put an end to summer.
Looking ahead to this week, the clouds will make their way into our region giving mostly cloudy skies and a drop in temperature around the low 70s tomorrow. The weather models show a front swinging off of a low pressure system over in Canada which could bring some showers late tomorrow. As we work into Tuesday, things get a little more wet. Expect cloudy skies, maximum temperatures in the upper 60s and rain likely for the evening commute home from work. On Wednesday, another large low pressure system coming off of the Pacific starts to head in towards us. Expect more chances for rain and overcast skies as the front passes through our region. Temperatures should stay in the mid to upper 60s.
The rest of the week and into the weekend have a very similar pattern. This week is definitely going to be a gloomy one that is filled with overcast skies, chillier temperatures and a lot more rain than we've seen in a while. Keep your chins up, though. Fall is great in its own way and I'm personally excited for the rainy days and colder weather to come.
Until next time,
