Updated Friday 4:30 p.m.
Looking out the window today, it likely qualifies as a "Dark and stormy...day". It's a good evening to curl up with some hot chocolate or the like listen to the rain splash against the window.
Steady rains will hold through the late evening, then for many will taper off to showers overnight once the main cold front passes. We'll have a little burst of breezy winds but nothing too major -- a borderline Wind Advisory remains in effect for gusts to 45 mph in the Northwest Interior until 7 p.m. but just 20-30 mph gusts elsewhere. The exception to the decreasing rain is the Convergence Zone areas between Seattle and Everett where rain will likely continue through much of the night. Lows will be in the low 40s. (Oh, and more snow in the mountains overnight: 4-8 inches expected in the passes by early morning.)
Saturday will be in between storms with sort of a drippy, cloudy day of scattered showers but not soaking, all day wet like today. Highs will be in the low 50s.
Our next front comes in early Sunday morning but it's not looking quite as strong as before and also looks like it'll be a rainy morning for tailgating, rain will be decreasing in the early afternoon so there's hope for a relatively dry Seahawks game (a bit breezy though). Highs will be in the low 50s.
A bit of a lull Sunday evening through about midday Monday then light rain returns for the evening and holds into Tuesday. A brief break Wednesday-day then rain is back again for Wednesday night with showers holding into Thanksgiving.
Long range models suggest the following storm may miss us to the south, giving us perhaps a couple dry days during the Thanksgiving weekend.
