Seat belts fastened? The weather's about to go through a series of "lurches" over the next several days.
The sunshine and 70 ish degrees Friday-day is about to give way to a rainy Friday night as a storm rushes through overnight. Expect rain to develop just after sunset with lows in the low-mid 50s.
Showers will linger around Saturday morning with breezy winds to 20-30 mph in gusts. The showers will decrease for most areas Saturday midday into the afternoon with peeks of sunshine, but a Convergence Zone is expected to form and hang out in its usual North Seattle/South Snohomish County areas, keeping showers going there through the day. Highs will be in the mid 50s.
Sunday's forecast is super tricky, with another weather system heading into British Columbia but now forecast models have the rain line sagging a bit farther south, and the Puget Sound region is right on the edge. So for those north of Everett, expect rain at times Sunday.
For those South of Olympia, looks like you'll be dry with perhaps even some sunbreaks the farther south you go. But as I mentioned, the Seattle Metro area is right on the fringe. The models, for what it's worth, are thinking the rain will stay just north of the city but it's so close that a few dozen miles off and we've got rain here as well. So we have to have a chance of showers in the forecast Sunday for Seattle, but cross fingers for those with outdoor needs that the rain holds its line farther north. Highs will be in the upper 50s.
Looks like we'll be dry through late Monday afternoon or Monday evening wth highs back into the mid 60s, but then rain returns late in the day. That kicks off a cooler, showery pattern with perhaps a few thunderstorms for Tuesday and Wednesday with highs dropping into the low-mid 50s. Showery weather holds through the week.
Have a great weekend!
