Our Memorial Day weekend is opening up on a bit of a gray note, with a few showers thrown into the mix. There seemed to be a never ending layer of clouds above us all day with a high of 62°. Meanwhile, there were areas of very heavy rain in the eastern slopes of the Cascades where a Flash Flood Watch was issued.
Saturday will start off much the same way. Showers may be a little more prominent during the afternoon in the Puget Sound region. Highs will creep up into the mid-60s, and the showers will dwindle as the day closes, but clouds will stay.
Showers and possibly a thunderstorm or two will return to the Cascade Mountains once again, and the snow level up there will bump up to 9,500 ft. If you want a completely different world of weather, head east and enjoy the 80°+ temperatures and sunshine that Eastern Washington will provide tomorrow.
Temperatures will try to climb out of the 60s on Sunday, but the cloud cover won't allow them past 68°F. It will be a mostly dry, but cloudy for the pre-memorial day get together.
Memorial Day will see some drizzles wandering throughout the day. Temps will meander in the mid to upper 60s. It certainly won't be rainy or cold enough to keep washingtonians from changing their plans this holiday!
There is a light at the end of the tunnel. The skies and temperatures will begin to gradually improve as we progress through the week. We could be hitting the mid-70s by next Friday!
Have a great holiday weekend!
