Seattle finished up February as the warmest on record, on the heels of a very warm January (and record-warm December) as well, and the early spring-time weather has in tandem brought out the first signs of spring.
Updated Tuesday 5:30 p.m.
A pretty slow week in the weather department continues. Sun lovers better hope there isn't going to be some massive payback for all this winter sunshine, like raining out the next 10 Memorial Days and July 4ths :)
But sun fans might as well take advantage of the sunny weather while we have it...
Tonight will be mostly clear and chilly again with lows around or just under freezing.
Wednesday is shaping up to be much like today -- patchy fog otherwise sunny with highs in the low-mid 50s.
A weak system will sneak over our ridge of high pressure on Thursday, mainly heading into B.C. and tossing some clouds our way to make the day mostly cloudy but much of the region will stay dry, save for some sprinkles on the north coast. Highs will be in the low 50s.
Once the ridge rebounds on Friday, it'll set up in a spot that brings warmer weather for us. Thus as the sunshine returns, expect temperatures to zoom up a bit too -- into the upper 50s and low 60s Friday through Monday under sunny skies.
Really, count Tuesday in the dry, sunny and mild category too.
Long range models have a cooler, rainier patter sitting out there toward the end of next week, but it seems that the cooler weather is always 10 days away. Maybe once we get closer to a holiday, it'll start to sneak closer to our actual time frame :)
