It would be difficult to write a more appropriate script for a Labor Day holiday weekend. First, each day got better and better. Next, precisely at the time that the kids go back to school and everyone else goes back to work, the rain shows up. The timing is uncanny. But that seems to be the storyline that nature has in store for us.
The clouds will increase tonight and overnight lows will drift down into the mid to upper 50s. Tuesday we start off with a chance of rain which will increase into the afternoon. A wet commute is likely in most areas, but it could be especially wet between Seattle and Everett as a convergence zone develops, providing even more rainfall.
In addition, the change will bring cooler air and the freezing level will drop to 6,000 feet in the mountains. That is as low as we've seen in many months.
Rain showers will linger through Wednesday. But on Thursday Mother Nature has arranged for some very nice weather to kick off the NFL football season. The Seahawks will take the field with temperatures around 75° with partly to mostly sunny skies. That sounds about right for the twelves' to be comfortable as we make enough noise to make Green Bay uncomfortable!
And speaking of sun, there will be plenty of it from Thursday and all the way through the weekend. So don't put your sunglasses away just yet.
Have a great Tuesday!
