It almost looks like the mountain is erupting, but instead it's just being a "better door than a window."
Updated Friday 4:35 p.m.
A little bit of an appetizer today for rain with just some light sprinkles and drizzle as we get a weak warm front (much tamer than Northern Vancouver Island and Haida Gwai which had gusts to 90 mph and several inches of rain with the remnants of Hurricane Oho)
Skies will remain cloudy overnight with occasional light rain and mild temperatures with lows staying in the upper 50s to near 60.
A much wetter day is on tap Saturday as a stronger front moves through. Expect steady rains for much of the day, tapering to showers in the late evening and night (although a Convergence Zone will keep the rain going between Seattle and Everett) with gusty south winds to 20-35 mph as well around Seattle and a bit stronger on the coast and far North Sound waters (like Whidbey Island, Camano Island, the San Juans and western Whatcom and Skagit County where a WIND ADVISORY is in effect for Saturday for gusts up to 45 mph.) Highs will be in the mid 60s.
We'll be in a break again Sunday but still generally cloudy -- maybe a few lingering early showers but generally dry with highs in the mid 60s.
Another weak front comes through on Monday for a little more light rain, but we dry out for the rest of the week. Tuesday through Thursday will feature partly to mostly sunny skies after areas of morning fog burn off with highs in the mid 60s.
