Updated Friday 10:30 p.m.
A rainy and blustery night is on tap as the first part of a storm system rolls ashore.
Expect steady rains overnight with gusty east winds along the I-90 corridor and in the Cascade Foothills as the storm approaches. A Wind Advisory is in effect until 11 a.m. for Bellevue, Issaquah, North Bend, Gold Bar, and Enumclaw for gusts to 40 mph.
Rain will briefly taper off in Saturday morning -- or at least lighten up a bit, but steadier, heavier rains return for midday Saturday as the main center of the storm comes inland.
This storm had earlier in the week looked fairly threatening, then it didn't but now latest models Friday evening are giving the storm a bit more oompf again. So expect a stormy Saturday evening night with steady moderate-to-heavy rains and wind gusts of 30-45 mph in the city and perhaps gusts to 45-55 mph north and coast. Peak winds will be during the overnight hours so the winds should hold off until after the Sounders and Husky games, but it'll be soggy games. Highs will be in the upper 50s.
After a wet and windy Saturday night, rain tapers to showers Sunday with highs in the 50s.
We'll get a lull Sunday night into Monday afternoon but our next storm comes inland Monday evening into Monday night and Tuesday. This has the remnants of Hurricane Ana, but so far, it's not looking that threatening besides just another round of steady rains and moderately gusty winds -- actually even less winds that Saturday night. Highs stay in the mid-upper 50s.
Showers Wednesday before another steady rainmaker comes in for Thursday. Early bets for Halloween are cool and showery.
