Few showers Friday

Happy Friday! It’s a calm and mainly clear morning early on, however, clouds are already increasing and there is some rain at the coast. The rain is from a weakening cold front that will slowly push inland late this morning and into the early afternoon. I don’t expect much from this system, but some showers will produce a few hundredths of an inch here and there. Showers will stay scattered into tonight with partly to mostly cloudy skies in the mid-60s. The chance for afternoon thunderstorms is low, and mainly confined to the north Cascades and maybe the coast. Highs will be in the 60s.

Saturday will have the best rain chance with only very limited sunbreaks during the day. By Saturday late morning through afternoon, there will likely be enough instability in the atmosphere to get a few thunderstorms with lightning and small hail. This chance will be enhanced in a Puget Sound Convergence Zone north of Seattle, sagging south late. We could have some gusty winds near thunderstorms as well. Highs Saturday will be in the 50s.

On Sunday, the chance for thunderstorms will be lower than the start of the weekend but by afternoon we could have an isolated thunderstorm near the Cascades. There will also be a few showers along with some sunbreaks. So for Father’s Day, not the best forecast but I expect plenty of dry times, but folks will want to continue to watch the weather. Highs will be in the upper 50s and low to mid 60s.

Early next week looks drier though a few showers could still be around on Monday morning. We could turn back warmer by the middle to latter part of next week with highs in the 70s to start summer next Thursday.
