In typical summers, Seattle gets a handful of 80 degree days a year (25 to be exact -- OK, so they're big hands).
This summer? It was the average high temperature.

Remember on Aug. 1 it was 92 degrees?
Here on Aug. 31, we're now talking about mountain snow, just after experiencing a wind storm. Brings new meaning to the term "Crazy 8" on the calendar.
The cool, showery pattern we've seen today is basically the theme of the week, as a broad trough of low pressure parks overhead, occasionally tossing weak systems our way.
Periods of light rain will be around tonight with breezy winds as a cold front that's been bugging much of the North Sound today finally pushes through. Lows will be in the low-mid 50s.
Tuesday and Wednesday will just feature scattered light showers at times amid mostly cloudy skies and relatively cool temperatures as highs struggle to get to the mid-upper 60s. It also looks like snow levels will drop to around 5,500-6,000 feet for Wednesday through Friday which could bring a few snow showers to the high mountain areas. Just a heads up if heading into the mountains.
It looks like we'll have a greater coverage of showers on Thursday as another impulse comes in with highs in the mid 60s.
Showers linger into Friday, then it appears we might dry out for Labor Day Weekend. It's early and sometimes these troughs take a bit longer to move on, but we're cautiously optimistic.
